Volunteering in Analog

Are you a student or staff at ITU and interested in becoming a volunteer barista in Cafe Analog?
We open for applications twice a year (August and February), and always at the beginning of the semester. Keep your eyes peeled on our Social platforms as well as ITU’s info screens.

What is Cafe Analog?

Analog is ITU’s student-run, non-profit café, serving coffee and tea to more than 500 students a day. We’re comprised of about 60 students and faculty members of all majors, nationalities, and ages, working together to make Analog the best, most “hygge”, place at ITU.
Analog is an organization with a flat structure. We elect a new board, called Analogen, every semester at General Assembly, but we are at no different level than any other volunteer – we all started as baristas just like you.

What do we expect from you as a volunteer?

Keeping a café open every weekday is hard work, so, volunteering at Analog requires trust. We need reliable, enthusiastic people to join our organization. We expect you to take initiative, and consult your fellow volunteers about your ideas. Anyone in Analog can improve on what we do, but being more than 60 people in an organization means that we need to improve ourselves collaboratively.

We have various roles that need filling, but most of our volunteers are baristas, i.e. they take shifts and make coffee. Other volunteers plan our shifts, manage our storage, plan our hangouts, audit our financial accounts, and so on. Everyone has to go through barista training and a kitchen course. As a barista, you are expected to take a 2-2,5 hour shift every week. The other roles such as managers and board members have varying degrees of expected workload.

In Analog we use Basecamp to communicate, and so we expect you to check and actively engage with the Basecamp group regularly.

What’s in it for you?

Volunteering in Analog is hard and fun work, and also comes with some great benefits. First of all, you join the Analog family, which means a chance to meet the greatest people at ITU across majors and classes. We get together several times per semester to hang out and get to know each other better. For example, we have played petanque at BouleBar, painted mugs at Creative Space, and played mini golf at Camping Bar. We also host events in the café for all of ITU.

Additionally, all volunteers can enjoy free black coffee and tea, as well as espresso drinks, chai, cocoa, and matcha for 6 DKK. What could be seen as the most important perk is that you get access to Analog during vacations and exam periods.
