At each stop on the U2 360° Tour, I’m joined by a group of ONE volunteers who spend the day talking with fans and signing them up as new ONE members. It’s a long day on their feet, and at the end of it the best volunteers will have signed up more than 150 new members.
We chatted with Stephanie and Horst, the two volunteers who signed up the most new members at the show in Hannover, to see what it takes to be a great volunteer.
Quick run down on them: Stephanie is 20 years old and is a student in Berlin. Horst is 58, lives near Hannover, and works with youth groups.
They are about as different at it comes, but they have an important thing in common: the passion to make a difference. It doesn’t matter who you are, if you want to make sure we all play a part in making sure everyone in the world has access to clean water and every child has a chance to receive a basic education, then you’ve got what it takes to be a great ONE volunteer.
It was great to meet you Stephanie and Horst, I hope to see your passion in many more people as I keep rolling down the road!
