ITSS owns and operates the annual Carolina Games Summit, "where video game developers and players unite". We host events all over the Carolina's and Virginia!
Get involved in the game development and esports community by joining the Carolina Games Summit as a volunteer for our collaboration with GalaxyCon in Minneapolis, Nov 7th - 10th ! Applicants will have an opportunity to do a variety of tasks prior to, during, and after the event. If you want to volunteer a few days, or be deeply involved in the creation of the event helping year round, this is the position for you.
Volunteers may be asked to assist tournament directors or other volunteers, help register attendees, as well as answer their questions about the event. Volunteers will also be needed to test and setup equipment, market the event, introduce and coordinate speakers, manage tournament brackets, free play areas, and general hospitality services such as cleanup and tear-down.
We are always looking for great tournament directors and promoters! The more volunteers we get the more tournaments we can run at our events and throughout the year!
A love of video games is the #1 requirement for this position. Prospective volunteers should have a strong work ethic with high standards of quality combined with a willingness to contribute to make the event a success long term. Additionally, it helps to be over the age of 18 and have an open schedule, or failing that, have your parents permission to volunteer. A recommendation letter from a parent or current/former employer is required for all volunteers. A background check may be required depending on the specific tasks assigned to a prospective volunteer.

- Event Passes
- Volunteer T-Shirt
- Access to inside info about the event
- Network with event sponsors, speakers, and exhibitors before, during, and after the event.
- Great Resume building opportunity with star volunteers receiving recommendations to job opportunities inside ITSS as well as the game industry itself.
