Why is it good to volunteer, especially at a World Athletics Championships?
Because it combines sport, experience and life-long memories!
A world-class event such as the World Athletics Championships, which Budapest will host in 2023, offers many opportunities for volunteers.
You can be part of the miracle of the organisational process! You can develop, learn and experience. You can belong to a great community. Meet new people, make new friendships and get unforgettable experiences with us.
We will lift you to unknown dimensions and encourage you to step out of your comfort zone. New tasks and challenges await. Maybe you are attracted to the field of media, or you would like to learn more about organising events,. You can test your hidden reserves in any field during the World Championships. We guarantee that you will find what you are best at and leave with a lot of new knowledge and experience.
“It may seem daunting at first with so many new things and tasks, but thanks to the great team, I got the run of it very quickly and enjoyed every moment of volunteering,” said Lili (17), who was a volunteer at the István Gyulai Memorial Athletics Competition. “By the end of the day, I was thinking about studying in the field of media.”
The fruits of your work are immediately visible.
“I helped a Polish athlete for a whole day, because he lost his luggage at the airport and all his equipment was in it,” said Gábor (20). “I helped him get everything so he could compete the next day. At the end of the day, he was so grateful for the help, and it was an incredible feeling for me to help an athlete. We talked a lot, he also gave me advice on my own athletics career.”
The reward is not to be missed, as you will make many new friendships, meet the best athletes in the world, have a chance to peek behind the scenes of the sport and finish every day with memories what will last a lifetime.
Join us as a volunteer, be a part of the World Championships and collect lifelong experiences!
