“Starting shot“ for the berlin 2009™ Volunteer Programme
|Current events Friday, December 7th, 2007|
New since Friday, December 7, 2007 , anyone who is interested can now apply to be a volunteer through the website of the organising committee for the World Championships, at www.berlin2009.org. Volunteers are needed who would like to take advantage of this unique opportunity to support the organisation of the 12th IAAF World Championships in Athletics berlin 2009™.
Major sporting events are no longer conceivable without the help of countless volunteers. The volunteers give a ‘face’ to the event and are often the first ones to meet and greet the visitors, athletes, functionaries, and partners at and around the official event venues. Friendliness, motivation, and enthusiasm are essential for the presentation of a major event, and these qualities leave a lasting impression on all of the participants and guests.
The World Championships are the third most important international sports festival after the Olympic Games and Football World Cup. About 3,500 volunteers will be needed in the German capital to assist in a wide range of tasks for the implementation of the event, the largest sporting event for the year 2009. The selection of the right volunteers is essential for the atmosphere and presentation of berlin 2009™.
Applications are available on the website of the BOC organising committee under the following link for everyone who would like the chance to experience berlin 2009™ up close and to make new friends with like-minded people of diverse backgrounds.
