California Destination Imagination (CALDI) is a volunteer-run organization, so we depend heavily on the efforts and energy of our volunteers around the state. We receive support from 2,000 volunteers, who help run our programs in free spaces like classrooms, living rooms and auditoriums around the state.


There are a variety of options, with varying degrees of time commitments. Some of our key roles are:


  • Team Manager: In this role, you can mentor the kids on a Destination Imagination team. You’ll help them as they make and build friendships, and work on solving Challenges throughout the season.
  • Tournament Official: As an Official, you can play a part in bringing a Destination Imagination tournament to life. Your role might be to appraise teams, to help in the score room or to usher teams to their sites. This role is typically over in a weekend.
  • Regional Director: Dedicated volunteers who coordinate Destination Imagination activities for a specific geographic area.
  • Regional Committee:  Volunteers who help the Regional Director in the management of activities for a specific geographic area.

These are just a few of the roles available. If you’re interested in being a part of the Destination Imagination program, please contact us.
