Join the MEMO22 team!

This August, the Middle European Mathematical Olympiad will be held in Bern. High-school students from ten different countries will participate and compete against each other in numerous exams. Additionally, they will partake in various extracurricular activities and get to know Bern and Switzerland better. In order to carry out such an event, the help of volunteers is essential. That is why we need you.

How to get involved

There are several ways you can get involved as a volunteer and several roles you can take on. Your options are listed below.


As a guide, you would accompany a delegation from another country for the entire week. You would go along on the trips and make sure that the participants are at the right place at the right time. Availability: 24.08.-31.08.2022


As a runner, you help where help is needed and you take on the tasks that come your way. That is why it is no problem if you can only be there on certain days. Availability: Flexible


As an invigilator, you are present during the exams. Duties include supervising exams, distributing snacks and paper, collecting questions, etc. Availability: 27.08 & 28.08.2022


As a photographer, you are present at the events and take photos, which are then uploaded to our website. You are relatively flexible, because the job can be done by several people. Availability: Flexible

Event organizer

As an event organizer, you would help with the organisation ahead of MEMO22. For example, organising a sports afternoon or something similar would be an option. Availability: Before the event
