Call for Volunteers

The volunteer application for the 6th World Parkinson Congress will open in 2021.

The WPC 2022 is looking for volunteers who:

  • Are available from Monday, June 6 to Friday, June 10, 2022 with a smaller number of volunteer positions open Saturday and Sunday, June 4th & 5th

If you have applied and been accepted as a volunteer in the past, and then could not meet your commitment to the congress, you will not be accepted as a volunteer for the following congress. 


We offer:

  • A training course on Sunday, June 5, 2022 or Monday, June 6, 2022 (mandatory – time to be determined, but afternoon is most likely)
  • Coffee breaks in the volunteer room
  • Three T-shirts
  • A meal voucher before or after each 5 hour shift
  • Free entry to the sessions and/or events when you are not working
  • Free learning opportunity in sessions where you are volunteering
  • A rewarding experience and the opportunity to meet some of the most highly regarded Parkinson’s clinical researchers, basic scientists, and advocates living with Parkinson’s today
  • A reference for your CV
  • An amazing experience!

Regarding volunteers with physical challenges or disabilities:

Every effort will be made to allow participation by volunteers with physical challenges. Regardless of a volunteer’s physical capabilities, she/he must be able to communicate verbally in a clear and concise manner in order to best assist Congress attendees. A variety of tasks will require volunteers, so if movement is a challenge, a stationary job will be assigned.

Steps to become a WPC 2022 Volunteer:

  1. Apply through the online volunteer application form.
  2. Within two weeks, we will review your application on a rolling basis and contact you.
  3. If accepted, we will send you a code to register for the WPC 2022. Do not register for the Congress until you hear from us regarding the volunteer program.
