Austin Over the Edge

Would you like to volunteer?

For the past 10 years, we have relied enormously on our dedicated volunteers to make Over The Edge successful in every way. This year, we hope it will be no different and because of that, we need YOU to help Make-A-Wish put on a show once again.

We are looking for 34 volunteers on June 5th, 2021, broken up into 3 shifts. Every volunteer will receive an Over The Edge t-shirt and water bottle. Please keep in mind that part of this event takes place outdoors, so some volunteer positions will be outside. You also must be at least 18 years of age or older to volunteer for this event. Signup Today! 

General Volunteer Shifts:

Event set-up: 7:00AM-10:00AM

1st Shift:  8:00AM-1:00PM

2nd Shift: 12:30PM-5:30PM


Duties can include checking participants in, escorting participants to 28th floor, assisting rope volunteers on the 5th floor landing (outside), running supplies to the 5th and 28th floors, rooftop greetings/security.

Separately, we will need 20 Rope Volunteers to assist our technical team on Friday June 4th Media/VIP day and Saturday, June 5th Event Day. Although we prefer individuals who have experience working with rope, such as climbers, cavers, firefighters, and SWAT, becoming a rope volunteer is open to anyone with an enthusiastic and safety conscious mindset. The highly trained technical staff at Over The Edge provide all training that they will need during a session on the day prior to the event.
