Would you like to help us out during Abunai! so we can make the convention  the best it can be?
Then come and join our Gopher or First aid team. (A first aid certificate is mandatory for the last option)
Every year we are actively searching for volunteers because we are aware that without their help there wouldn’t even be a convention to speak off! So if you’re interested in joining the fun,, please don’t hesitate to sign up as a volunteer.

What does it mean to be a Gopher?

Gophers help us out with several tasks during the convention.
There are different shifts you can choose from like Events, Infodesk, Registration, wardrobe and dealerroom for example.

What does it mean to be part of First aid?

If you’re part of the first aid team you will be asked to help out if people are injured or aren’t feeling well. .
