Be a Rio 2016 Volunteer

The Rio 2016 Organizing Committee opened its Volunteer Program today.

The Rio 2016 Volunteer Program is your opportunity to take part in the world’s biggest sporting event, helping with many of the activities that will be carried out in Rio de Janeiro and cities hosting football matches. Volunteering will also benefit you by enriching your CV, expanding your network, and giving you the chance to meet people from different cultures. You will also be able to enjoy exclusive training courses that will be provided for selected candidates. Do not miss out on this great opportunity to participate and make the history of the Olympic and Paralympic Games part of your own life’s history.
