Destination Imagination Coordinators are volunteers who faciliate the program at the local school or organization level.

They are the backbone of our volunteer core, making sure sure that teams are formed, that each has a Team Manager, and that they have access to the Program Materials.

Beyond that, coordinators:

  • Facilitate communications between DI participants and the sponsoring organization (e.g. school)
  • Help find resources for teams like skills training, sources of supplies, or other needs
  • Support team managers through mentoring, etc. 
  • In some cases, organize transportation to distant tournaments
  • Organize fundraising for their local DI program
  • Identify potential appraisers and tournament officials

We thank our amazing coordinators for all that they do for NYDI!
