Would you like to take part in the Amsterdam City Swim on Sunday 3rd September, but dry land is more your thing than being in the water? Then make a difference and sign up as an Amsterdam City Swim volunteer. We cannot say it often enough; you are indispensable!

What makes it fun to be a volunteer at Amsterdam City Swim?  

  • You participate in an amazing (international) event.
  • You contribute to the fight against ALS.
  • You receive a packed lunch and of course coffee, tea or soft drinks during the event.
  • You will receive a thank-you note to take home as an appreciation of your efforts.
  • You are welcome at the afterparty at the Marineterrein to end the day together!


Different functions

We have many great positions available in various teams so there is something for all skills! Everyone is welcome and your invaluable help is needed to make the event a success!

Additional questionnaire

In May, you will receive an additional questionnaire from us so that we can find out more about you and your preferences. This is when you can tell us if you are coming with someone else, which shift you’d like to be involved with and how you will travel to the event. This means we can take into you into account when we are assigning roles. We will try to accommodate your preferences as much as possible.

What working hours can you anticipate?

  • Working hours for the shifts are between 4 and 8 hours.
  • We work different shifts:
    • Most shifts start around 9am and last until around 5pm.
    • There are also shifts that start earlier: from 7.30am.
    • The last shift is from 11am to 7.30pm.
  • In between there is a (lunch) break.

Action page

Every volunteer gets their own action page. With this, you can also raise money for charity. This is not obligatory because we are already very happy with your contribution as a volunteer. But every extra euro for the fight against ALS counts towards finding a solution!


Points of attention

  • The minimum age to volunteer at ACS is 16 years old. For some volunteer positions (such as supervisor and first aider) you must be at least 18 years old.
  • As a volunteer, you will not receive any compensation for your time invested. However, you can claim any travel expenses you have incurred. You will receive a claim form on the day itself.
  • We would like to count on your commitment after registering as an ACS volunteer. In the unlikely event that something happens that forces you to cancel, please let us know as soon as possible so we can take this into account in our planning.

In short, we hope to organise another great event this year and bring it to life with our many enthusiastic volunteers.

Thanks in advance for your application!
