What is the Volunteers Programme?

The English term volunteer is commonly used in connection with athletics championships or football tournaments. Volunteers are involved in the organisation and running of the competitions according to their personal interests and skills.

Of course, there are no competitions in the Capital of Culture, but there are plenty of projects to get involved in. The help of committed citizens from Chemnitz and the cultural region is important for the success of the Capital of Culture.

Information about participating in the volunteering program:

Thank you very much for your willingness to participate in the volunteer program for Chemnitz 2025! The response so far has been great. That is why we are now taking a break in the registration process to train the core team. You can register for the volunteering program again from spring 2024.

This is how we are building the volunteer team for Chemnitz 2025:

We have already reached our annual target for 2023: there are currently over 100 people registered on our volunteer program. There is a great deal of interest in supporting the preparation process. We are very pleased about this.

Nevertheless, it is necessary for us to take a short registration break now. In the coming months, we will initially work with the core team of Chemnitz 2025 GmbH to train the volunteers in joint assignments and workshops. A new colleague will join the team in January to support the volunteer program. She will draw up a training plan so that we can start volunteering again in a well-structured way in 2024 after the initial tests of the past few months.

  • Registration for the volunteer program will be possible again from spring 2024.
  • Around 1000 supporters are needed.
  • A core team is currently being trained to be able to pass on knowledge to new volunteers.
  • A structured training process is being set up to welcome and train all new volunteers.
  • We expect many new volunteering opportunities starting in May 2024.
  • Most volunteers will be needed in the title year 2025.
