Volunteer

 

As a Charlotte-based organization, Techies Robotics is deeply committed to community service. We believe that the skills and experience gained through volunteering can have a transformative impact on our lives and the lives of those around us. That's why we seize every opportunity to share our knowledge and expertise with others, and to help empower our community to make a positive impact.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”  
– Margaret Mead
