High school and university students make up the largest part of those interested in being volunteers. The number is rounded out by adults, including many senior citizens. Volunteers come not only from Wrocław but also many other Polish cities and more than 50 countries world-wide.
TWG volunteers will assist the event’s organisers in areas such as venue preparation, serving members of the media and fans. They will be present not only around the various competition venues, but also at the Wrocław airport, in the Media and Accreditation Centres, as well as throughout the various athlete accommodations.
Services for volunteers
Volunteers will be looked after throughout the Games and will be provided with meals, volunteer uniforms and insurance. For those coming from outside the Wrocław area there will also be accommodation. During the Games volunteers will also be permitted to use Wrocław’s public transport system free of charge.
Volunteers by the numbers
The WOC will need more than 1500 volunteers to work TWG 2017. From among the more than 2700 candidates, the Games’ organisers will select 1000 persons, while the remaining number (500) will be chosen by the individual sport federations and associations in cooperation with the WOC.
The World Games 2017 take place 20–30 July 2017 in Wro
