As a volunteer, you’ll help build an organization that instills the same wonder and inspiration you feel when watching a TED or TEDx talk online. Volunteers share their time and talent to help drive the Quad Cities area idea revolution, creating a truly unique, single-day conference of ideas worth spreading.

Roles span all areas, from venue design and social outreach to partner management and hospitality. We have openings for day-of-event or longer-term volunteers that take a more active role. Sign up to get on our volunteer list, where you'll be notified on when and how to get involved.
