Cph Volunteers collaborates with a large number of different events in and around Copenhagen. It gives the volunteers a lot of good experiences and supports a lively event life in the city.

When you collaborate with Cph Volunteers, you will get:

  • Access to recruiting among almost 2,000 registered volunteers
  • Sparring and guidance on your volunteer management
  • Option to use the iVolunteer platform to manage your volunteers

We can collaborate with all non-commercial and public events in and around Copenhagen, about most tasks that are easy and accessible such as ticketing, wardrobe, practical work and manning a bar.

Whether your event and your volunteer tasks are within the frames of what Cph Volunteers can help with, ou can see more about in the guide further down the page.

Note: Remember to contact us well in advance, preferably 2 months before your event or earlier. That way, we can create enough awareness about your event among our volunteer network.

Guiding deadlines for new applications

  • If you need more than 100 volunteers, please apply 3 months before your event begins
Before you apply for volunteers, please consider:
  • Does your event fit with the purpose we support?
  • Which tasks do you need volunteers for?
  • Which qualifications or demands should the volunteers live up to to help you and your event in the best possible way?
  • How long are the volunteer shifts - and how many do you need?
  • Du you have the necassary resources for managing the volunteers?
  • What do you offer the volunteers as a thank you for their work?
  • Where can you make Cph Volunteers visible e.g. at the event, in the digital marketing etc.?

We will clarify all these questions at an introductory meeting where we can guide you about what we experience works the best so you can get the volunteers that fits the best for your event.
