Voluntary work is at the heart of the Olympic Movement. The Olympic and Youth Olympic Games wouldn’t be possible without volunteers’ participation, dedication and commitment. “Athletes are at the centre of the Olympic Movement and of the Games,” said Gerardo Werthein, President of the Buenos Aires 2018 Organising Committee. “Volunteers are essential for the Movement and essential for the development of the Youth Olympic Games,” he added.

Up to 8,000 volunteers for Buenos Aires 2018 will be chosen from a list of local and international candidates.
