Spending one amazing day with five hundred happy women is your dream.
As we all know but keep saying it again, “Pop In the City is for women only”…
… Now boys sob and huff in dismay…
*** BUT! ***
Like for any other event, we need resourceful people to help us on the big day.
Mind you! Female volunteers are welcome and beloved as well!

TASKS ON D-DAY
Be part of Pop In Team, it’s choose between 2 missions:
1/ The Challenge
Volunteer supervise it and special “accomplices” take care of the activity. As a Pop In volunteer, you’ll have to welcome the participants, explain the challenge and its rules, cheer them on, congratulate them and above all validate the challenge :).
Be strong! You will also ensure law and order sometimes, try and resist our Popins’ coy smiles (they’re pretty good at simpering), show a lot of self-control, reassure a Popin about to jump into open space although you are petrified yourself.
2/ The start line and Arrival Village
You will help us to set up the start line and the Arrival Village, but especially it is stay with a team to die for and have fun! You will discover behind the scenes of organization.
The bibs records:
You will also welcome the participants when they come to get their bibs for the race. This mission is optional but really recommended by the team!
Major moment of the race, it is when participants get all their equipment (bibs, tote bag, city map, bracelet…). 600 girls to welcome in a few hours… it is almost a challenge in itself! You’ll understand that we need some backup. It is always a nice moment that allows to meet the Popins and be with us!
If you are full of energy, smile all the time, show some sense of authority (sometimes needed with relentless Popins!) and are ready to join us on Friday, then you have the profile of a perfect Pop In volunteer!
Please note that speaking French is a plus.
Friday 3:45-9pm and Saturday 6:45-8am: Bibs withdrawal
Major moment of the race, it is when participants get all their equipment (bibs, tote bag, city map, bracelet…). 600 girls to welcome in a few hours … it is almost a challenge in itself !

Saturday from 9am to 5pm: Race
It’s the key moment of the event. With another volunteer, you’ll be responsible for one challenge. Your mission? Welcome the Popins, explain them the challenge, enforce the rules… Be strong! The Popins are desperate to have their stickers!
Saturday night from 7pm. on: Dinner + party
