Volunteer programme
The main aim of the programme is to give a chance for young students, who are interested in sports and in organizing sport events, to get the opportunity of experiencing a unique adventure, learning about the values of sport, and gaining valuable work experience through volunteering.

The participants will raise their competencies and skills in organising sport event in the European level, get new experiences in different fields, will be useful for the Organising Committee, exchange knowledge, learn about the culture of the country, get new friends all over the Europe and much more. The Volunteer Programme includes for example working for the Organising Committee, supporting the organizers in the competition fields (global coordination, manning information desks, communication between organization committee and referees, guests).

We have the cause. You have the effect. #volunteer
