As a host city, Columbus rolls out the welcome mat for competitors, spectators and officials. Often, the Sports Commission depends on the help of enthusiastic volunteers to donate their time to work at welcome centers, information booths or on-site at the event.
Volunteer With Columbus is a new online resource for residents to find leisure volunteering opportunities in Greater Columbus. The Greater Columbus Sports Commission and Experience Columbus are partnering with area festivals, arts groups, sporting events and other attractions in Greater Columbus to provide one central online portal for volunteers to sign up.
With most events, there are a variety of shifts available. As a token of appreciation, volunteers may receive apparel representing the event. Previous events supported by volunteers include the NCAA Men’s College Cup, Sierra Mist MLS All-Star Weekend, NCAA Frozen Four, NCAA Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments, the FIFA Women’s World Cup, the Big Ten Baseball Tournament and USA Volleyball Girls’ Junior National Championships.
