Contact: Kate Mytty, W20-549,

We have a rockstar volunteer crew who helps make the program happen. During the academic year volunteers help run events, make publicity happen, and work with teams. Beyond that, every year we have about 80 teams that enter the IDEAS Global Challenge. Between our 20+ person volunteer crew and the 80 teams, that's a lot of people that we have the pleasure of getting to know and a lot of people to manage.

Ideally, you're a graduate student with flexible time. The schedule is busier during certain key points in the year which we can talk about in person. Overall, it's an awesome opportunity to meet some of the upcoming social innovators at MIT and manage a great volunteer crew.

Is this you? Drop Kate Mytty a note:
