Buenos Aires 2018 launches volunteer programme

The Organizing Committee of the 3rd Youth Olympic Games opened online registration to be part of the voluntary workforce of Buenos Aires 2018.

The Organizing Committee of the Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games launched its volunteer programme, in coincidence with the International Volunteer Day, celebrated worldwide on December 5th.

 

Voluntary work is at the heart of the Olympic Movement, and both the Olympic and Youth Olympic Games wouldn’t be possible without the participation and the passion of many, many volunteers, who donate themselves daily, with dedication and commitment.

 

The President of the Buenos Aires 2018 Organising Committee, Mr. Gerardo Werthein said: “Athletes are at the centre of the Olympic Movement and of the Games. Volunteers are essential for the Movement and essential for the development of the Youth Olympic Games.”

 

Up to 8.000 volunteers will be chosen from a list of local and international candidates. Many, different positions will be available within multiple sectors: spectator assistance, translation services, media relations and sports competition support, just to name a few.
