Destination Imagination of New York is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to engaging participants in project-based , STEAM-focused challenges that are designed to build confidence and develop extraordinary creativity, critical thinking, communication, and teamwork skills.
The Destination Imagination of Board of Trustees comprises leaders from the nonprofit and for-profit sector-as well as experienced Destination Imagination volunteers-who are passionate about helping our students achieve anything they can imagine.
The Treasurer is responsible for overseeing all of NYDI's financial accounts and budgeting. The Treasurer should be a strongly committed and highly motivated volunteer with accounting experience and knowledge of nonprofit financial management. Service as Treasurer is usually combined with service as a Board Member. The Treasurer is expected to attend our virtual board meetings to report on NYDI’s financial status.
Our board members champion the importance of innovation and creativity, and believe that each and every organization needs a strong and effective board to fully realize its potential. In addition to the standard roles and responsibilities of a board member, our board members are active advocates and ambassadors for the organization and are fully engaged in identifying and securing the financial resources and partnerships necessary for Destination Imagination of New York to advance its mission.
While Board Members do not have official term limits or requirements, we expect a commitment of 2 - 3 years. The Board meets as a whole once the second Tuesday of every month, and various committees are expected to meet as needed between full board meetings. The time commitment is typically 5 hours a month, but may increase prior to our spring tournaments.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

To engage participants in project-based challenges that are designed to build confidence and develop extraordinary creativity, critical thinking, communication, and teamwork skills. We inspire and equip students to achieve anything they can imagine in life.
Now more than ever, instilling the values of creativity, collaboration, and innovation in our world’s future leaders is vital: According to the World Economic Forum, sixty-five percent of children now entering primary school will hold jobs that currently don’t exist. How do we prepare the next generation of leaders to solve some of the most daunting challenges this world has ever faced while working in fields we haven’t even yet identified? By nurturing their unbridled creative spirit to inspire and equip students to achieve anything they can imagine in life.
Every year, Destination Imagination offers challenges for more than 150,00 students across the globe to solve together - without the assistance of adults. All the ideas, concepts, research and even mistakes are part of an enthralling creative journey to solve the challenge on their own terms. Along the way teams also learn valuable life skills such as problem solving, project management, team dynamics, and perseverance.
