Best part is when u get to help someone who's really scared to get over the edge. Seeing someone overcome their fears sticks with you.

Volunteering let me help people that are nervous take the first step, then look up at me and say thank you.

I couldn't think of a better way to spend a day than on a roof top with friendly people helping raise money for a good cause.

TOP 5 FAQs

1.  How do I sign up to be a Ropes Volunteer?

Be sure to visit our Volunteer Signup page to see if there is an event happening in your area.  Select the event and date you would like to rope volunteer for and then sign-up!

2.  What experience/background is required to rope volunteer?

No PRIOR experience is required!   While we do give preference to those with experience working with rope such as climbers, cavers, firefighter, SWAT, etc., becoming a rope volunteer is open to everyone with an enthusiastic and safety conscious mindset.  Over The Edge will provide all training you’ll need in our training session, which takes place the day before the event.  We have many different roles available including some indoors and on ground level for those who may not like heights!  However, we always aim to rotate everyone throughout the event so that everyone may experience all the different jobs.

3.  What is the age limit to volunteer?

The standard age limit is 18 years or older to rope volunteer. If you are under the age of 18 and have extensive rope training or experience, feel free to email otevolunteer@overtheedgeglobal.com to find out if there may be an opportunity to be a part of an event!

4.  As a Ropes Volunteer, will I get to rappel?

Our team will make every effort to give our Ropes Volunteers the opportunity to rappel. This typically happens during an on-site training session the day before the event.

5.  What is the time commitment for Ropes Volunteers?

Ropes Volunteer training typically takes place the day before event day and is a 3-hour session. This is mandatory for first-time volunteers and encouraged for return volunteers. We ask that all volunteers be available for the entire day on the actual Event Day which can run up to 12 hours from arrival to wrap up. There is also Ropes Volunteer webinar on YouTube, and it is encouraged that you watch this video online before the event.
