#TogetherUnbeatable – the Volunteer Stories

Over 170 SCHUFA volunteers supported the Special Olympics World Games in Berlin in a wide variety of areas. There was a central contact point in front of the Red Town Hall directly at the well-known Neptune Fountain with the modulbox MAX on the festival grounds.

The Special Olympics Festival offered a wide range of street food. A colorful stage program, many hands-on offers and sporting activities for all participants of the World Games, visitors and Berliner citiziens. SCHUFA invited to casual games and activities with an on-site activity stand. On hot summer days, but also when it rained surprisingly, the modulbox MAX offered a sheltered place in the open air for the team of Schufa volunteers and the visitors. After a short briefing, the team was able to easily open it in the morning and close it again in the evening when it was closed.
