3 days of sports, fun and emotions!

You make the difference! Whether at the aid station or along the route, as a volunteer you will be in the thick of the action. You want to take a look behind the scenes and you are amped up at being part of the action instead of being on the sidelines? If this is the case, you have come to the right place!

The choice is yours, and depending on your individual availability.

Wich benefits can I expect as a volunteer?

As a volunteer you will profit from several benefits, starting from catering during your shift to crew outfits and some cool goodies – depending on the amount of days you are active, we have prepared different equipment kits for you.

Do I get meals during my shift(s)?

Yes. We will provide you with meals during your shift(s); in addition there will be a snack buffet that you have access to around the clock in order to keep your sugar levels up.

How do I get to the event?

The event area is on the State Theater Square in Innsbruck. The venue is very easy to reach by bus, train and bike.

As a volunteer, will I have an allocated parking space?

No, there are limited parking options around the venue, which is why we ask volunteers as well as visitors to make use of public transport on their way to the venue.

As a volunteer, will you provide me with accomodation?

No, volunteers coming from abroad or not living within commuter distance will have to find their own accommodation, however, we are happy to offer our support in your search.

Where can I register to become a volunteer?

By registering via the registration form, your application as a volunteer has been received. The more precisely you describe yourself as a person, your desired area of work and your free time window, the better we can allocate you to tasks and thus the exact times of work. We will get back to you with your possible tasks and areas of work and decide together when and in which positions you can help. Please always communicate changes in your schedule by email to info@laufwerkstatt.at as soon as they have an impact on your shifts for the event.

How can I change the information I provided?

If your e-mail address or other personal details have changed, please send an e-mail to info@laufwerkstatt.at and we will update your details. Unfortunately, the categorisation of your favourite fields of application can no longer be changed after your final allocation.

Is there a minimum wage for volunteering?

The minimum age for volunteers is 16. If you are not yet 18, one of your parents or a legal guardian has to sign a declaration of consent on your behalf. This should be submitted no later than the start of the Volunteer Training.

As avolunteer, do i have to speak German or English?

You should have very good levels of German or English. As a volunteer you are acting as a point of contact for different people at the event, and you need to be able to communicate. Depending on your area of application you will also need to have a good command of German, both in writing and orally; knowledge of an additional foreign language is a plus.

What happens once I have signed up as a volunteer?

Your registration through the application form confirms your application as a volunteer. The more accurately you describe yourself as a person, your desired area of assignment, and your available time window, the better we can allocate tasks and specific deployment times for you. Rest assured that we will find a suitable task for each person, explain your areas of assignment, and send you briefings. However, please understand that your exact shifts can only be determined a few weeks before the event.

What should my availability be?

Depending on the area of application there are different time periods that you should be available for. Irrespective of that you should be available during the assigned times. The areas of application will be assigned depending on the applicants’ availability and flexibility. Please communicate any changes to your schedule as soon as they affect your shifts for the event.

Where can I get information regarding my area of application as well as my shift?

Your registration through the application form confirms your application as a volunteer. The more accurately you describe yourself as a person, your desired area of assignment, and your available time window, the better we can allocate tasks and specific deployment times for you. Rest assured that we will find a suitable task for each person, explain your areas of assignment, and send you briefings. However, please understand that your exact shifts can only be determined a few weeks before the event.

Will my entire shift(s) be outdoors?

Depending on the area of application, you will mostly be working outdoors, however, there will be a tent or break room available for breaks.

How long does a shift last?

Volunteer shifts last from 4 to 10 hours, with a minimum of one break; more often than not you will have more than one break spread out over the day. You will received your detailed roster a few weeks prior to the event.

It turns out I won't be available. Who do I inform?

If you have to change your area of work or unfortunately have to cancel, please contact us at info@laufwerkstatt.at and we will try to find a replacement for you as soon as possible.
