YES WE NEED VOLUNTEERS!
The success of Four Peaks Oktoberfest depends in large part to the efforts of our 2,000 volunteers. We have various 4-hour shifts available Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The hard work of our volunteers supports the primary mission of Tempe Sister Cities (TSC); which is to provide Tempe area high school juniors with a ten week international experience. This may be the most exciting and enriching experience of their lives. Our student exchange, educator exchange, and professional exchange programs are among our many valued programs that help promote international good will and cultural understanding. Tempe Sister Cities’ encourages cross-cultural cooperation and collaboration by building friendships between the people of Tempe and our 11 international partnerships with communities in other countries.
The favorite assignment is serving beer. Recruit a few friends or colleagues and discover pouring is even more fun when your friends are there. Training provided. Patrons will have a 21+ ID wristband prior to reaching your service station. There are 8 beer and 4 wine garden areas. We need you and/or your crew!
Hot grilled Brats - FOOD
Plenty of multitasking in all 3 of the brat tents. A great way for a workplace to volunteer together. Promote your organization or place of work by wearing themed shirts. Teenagers welcome, under 16 with an adult.
Without a robust crew of grillmiesters it just would not be Oktoberfest. After all, you can’t drink a beer without a well grilled brat in the off hand. Grab your brother or neighbor and volunteer as a team. The cold beverage, after your shift, will never taste better.
SUSTAINABILITYThe City of Tempe has developed an aggressive set of event recycling guidelines. Four Peaks Oktoberfest will meet the challenge with the help of a dynamic cadre of sustainability rangers. Much of the work will be public relations – informing that the blue cans are for recycling and the green 90 gallon containers are for landfill. We need your help. High school and college groups are perfect for this assignment.
CLEAN IS BEAUTIFUL
Can’t sleep? We have the perfect volunteer opportunity. We have an overnight crew that cleans the park for another day. The majority of the time is spent rolling 90 gallon containers to points along the main concourses where City of Tempe refuse trucks can lift and empty.. Then we roll them back to their interior park locations. Always finished before dawn.
Numerous different volunteer opportunities available:
WHY VOLUNTEER - WHY SUPPORT TEMPE SISTER CITIES
The primary mission of Tempe Sister Cities (TSC) is providing Tempe area high school summer seniors with a ten week international experience that, at the age of 17, may be the most exciting and enriching experience of their lives. For the past 45 years TSC has relied on the funds raised through Oktoberfest to send, after a rigorous selection process, an average of 32 student delegates among ten of TSC’s eleven sister cities. Starting in the early 70s the total number of international delegates is quickly approaching one thousand.
What do the delegates have in common or what is not unusual:
- The international experience has focused many a career choice.
- Their new brother or sister becomes a lifelong friend.
- The delegate’s families become friends and visit one another.
- They are the best and brightest.
- They attend the best colleges and universities.
- From doctors to Peace Corp volunteers, they are leaders.
The international exposure adds depth to their life experiences and completes the 1956 vision of President Eisenhower when he established Sister Cities International. Knowing firsthand the ravages of war he felt citizen diplomacy could be a powerful alternative.
