Volunteers are the people who make the Games happen, supporting every athlete, spectator, and visitor for the most amazing sporting event in the world. A piece of the success of the Olympic Games belongs to each one of the 34,548 volunteers of the Barcelona Olympic Games, the 60,422 volunteers of Atlanta and the 47,000 volunteers of the Sydney Games.
Every single volunteer will participate in this celebration by contributing to the success of the Games and by making the event unique on a human scale.
The greatest celebration of humanity is only possible through the will, the passion, the dedication and the professionalism of each volunteer. It is a unique opportunity for everybody present to witness the magic of the Games. Participating in the 2004 Olympic Games means participating in the greatest celebration of humanity. A celebration which will last for sixty days, beginning with the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games and ending at the Closing Ceremony of the Paralympic Games.
Sixty thousand volunteers will be trained to work at the ATHENS 2004 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Anyone interested in making the Athens Olympic Games a success is welcome to become a volunteer. There are no restrictions based on sex, race, creed, physical ability, social standing or education. The only qualification is that applicants must be 18 years old by 2004.
