Volunteer at WE24 or Invent It. Build It.


Volunteer for WE24 and experience SWE teamwork in action, and help us drive the conference and/or the Invent It. Build It. (IIBI) student outreach event.

Fulfilling a volunteer role at WE24 and/or IIBI is easy and fun, and it makes you eligible to earn a registration discount! To be eligible, you must check in for your shift at the WE24 Volunteer Room. Positions are limited, so sign up to be an IIBI volunteer or annual conference volunteer (opening soon!)

WE24 and IIBI volunteers must be registered for the WE24 conference and complete the required online training prior to the event.

Registration Discount Policy

To ensure your eligibility to receive a discount, please read the registration discount and eligibility policies below. Volunteers for WE24 and IIBI are eligible for the following:

  • A 25% discount for WE25 — Issued to volunteers who work a single shift of three hours or less.
  • A 50% discount for WE25 — Issued to volunteers who work a shift(s) between three and six hours.
  • A 75% discount for WE24 — Issued for lead volunteer positions or a general volunteer shift(s) of over six hours.

All volunteers must check in prior to starting their volunteer shift.

Only one volunteer discount or promo code is allowed per attendee. Discounts cannot be combined with a registration promo code. Volunteers may not combine multiple WE24 or IIBI shifts to receive multiple refunds.

Refund Process Time and Eligibility Policy

It will take up to 30 days to issue discount codes for WE25 to volunteers who are eligible. SWE will email discount codes to the email address used to register for the conference after the completion of the shift(s). Lead volunteers for both WE24 and IIBI and those volunteers who work six or more hours will receive their discount in the form of a refund to the credit/debit card used to purchase WE24 registration. If a check payment is made or the original credit/debit card is canceled before the refund is issued, no other refund method will be issued.

Once you commit to a volunteer assignment, you must fulfill it. If you need to change your assignment, we ask that you do so through your volunteer account before Sept. 30. If you fail to complete your assignment (no-show), you will not receive your registration discount.

Volunteers should attend the assigned volunteer training, which will be offered virtually prior to WE24 and IIBI.

October 24-26, McCormick Place, Chicago Illinois
