The SF Bay Odyssey of the Mind organization is looking for people to join our organization to help in a number of areas throughout the Northern California counties.
SF BAY Odyssey of the Mind is an all-volunteer organization. As such, every position is filled with dedicated volunteers who do it because they believe in it! If you are interested, please contact us at SFBAYrd1@norcalodyssey.org to inquire. We have the following volunteer positions throughout the Northern California Counties which are board and non-board roles.
- Regional Director
- Problem 1 Captain
- Problem 2 Captain
- Problem 3 Captain
- Problem 4 Captain
- Problem 5 Captain
- Spontaneous Problem Captain
- Primary Problem Captain
- Tournament Director
- Score Room co-ordinator
- Secretary (
- Hospitality co-ordinator (OPEN with other volunteers)
- Public Relations (OPEN)
In addition, we have numerous people that are volunteer Judges (non-affiliated with any team). We also have a number of tournament day volunteers (also, not affiliated).
We host an annual Tournament for all the teams in the San Francisco area to compete. Winning teams are promoted to the Northern California Association Tournament, and form there to a World Wide Tournament. It requires about 100 full-day Judges and an equal number of 2-hour volunteers to run a Tournament. Odyssey of the mind runs on volunteers.
WE NEED LOTS OF HELP TO KEEP THE ORGANIZATION GOING! Please consider volunteering for any of the above positions so we can continue the work of educating the children through this creative medium. THANKS TO ALL THE VOLUNTEERS!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

NorCal Mission The mission of NorCal Odyssey of the Mind is to administer, promote, and execute the guidelines, objectives, and rules of the Odyssey of the Mind program. The NorCal OM Association follows the guidelines set in the state by our bylaws, policies, and procedures. The organization is here for the support and guidance of the association members, volunteers, and students within the Odyssey of the Mind program.
The International mission of Odyssey of the Mind is to provide creative problem solving opportunities for everyone and to foster original and divergent thinking. Through the Odyssey of the Mind program, coaches, parents, judges, and volunteers promote creativity by challenging teams to solve divergent problems, that is, those with more than one solution. By working in teams, participants learn teamwork, critical thinking, problem solving, the appreciation and understanding of divergent views, and that a group can be a powerful thinking force. Students who participate develop a sense of self-respect and respect for others through development of their solutions, and through preparatory activities such as brainstorming and role-playing.
While the ultimate goal for most teams is to present their problem solutions in official competitions, this is not a requirement of participation. The purpose of the program is to provide students with an exciting learning experience that promises to be challenging and fun.
