The organization of an event with a large number of participants, as the European Universities Games 2018 in Coimbra, leads us to require a high number of people, on a voluntary basis, that after a careful selection and through specific training, will have a set of defined and objective tasks, fundamental for the success of the activity and the image that will remain after the event closure.
Any major sporting event would not be the same without the tremendous contribution of its volunteers, who provide key support to a wide range of operational areas while also creating a fantastic atmosphere during the event through their friendliness and joy.
The European Universities Games 2018 Volunteer Programme presents thousands of people from Portugal and other countries. There are several stages of the programme, including recruiting, selecting and training the volunteers, and finally organizing their work during the event and appreciating their effort and dedication.
In total, there will be around 1000 volunteers involved in the European Universities Games 2018. The Organizing Committee is responsible for recruiting and selecting applicants living in Portugal. International candidates go through the selection process from their respective home countries with online support.
Candidates should be over 16 years-old, possess effective availability during the event and teamwork skills. Previous volunteering experience will be an additional advantage.
The volunteers will provide support in areas such as:
- Educational Programmes
- Volunteers Management
Never forget that ... VOLUNTEERS ARE THE FACE OF THE EVENT!
