Rotary International, an international service organization unites more than a million people and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.

Each year, the Rotary International Convention brings together all the change-makers to celebrate the achievements, strategize the future impact, and network with the strong and worldwide Rotary friendship. In 2019, the Rotary International Convention will take place in Hamburg, Germany. The multi-facetted port city invites you to the Rotary International Convention from June 1st through June 5th, 2019. Use this opportunity to get to know Rotarians from around Germany, Europe, and the world! Help shape the future of Rotary and become inspired during the conference.

Volunteer Opportunity

We will be welcoming around 25,000 Rotarians from around the world to Hamburg during the 2019 Rotary International Convention. As many participating Rotarians are not from Germany and don’t speak German, we would like to help them navigate the great city of Hamburg!

Location: Hamburg, Germany
Date(s): June 1-5, 2019

There are specific locations in Hamburg where our guests will especially be in need of assistance, advice or help. This includes:

  • Hamburg airport
  • Hamburg central train station
  • S-train stations “Sternschanze” and “Dammtor”
  • The area surrounding the trade fair grounds “Messehalle”
  • Around the Elbe Philharmonic Hall and the Laeiszhalle
  • Near the Chamber of Commerce
  • Throughout the Inner city during the 3k-walk and the bike tour

Team Leader 

We are looking for individuals to serve as team leaders for the above-mentioned locations for the duration of the event. Tasks include the following:

  • Inspect the location/area in advance
  • Put together the task description for the volunteers
  • Schedule the shifts for the given location
  • Coordinate with the volunteers
  • Serve as the point of contact for all volunteers helping out in the team leaders’s area of responsibility 

The team leaders will take on a large amount of responsibility for their given area but will, of course, be supported by the volunteering project leaders in the HOC!
