European University Sports Association (EUSA), in cooperation with its Student Commission (EUSA STC) and the Organising Committees of the European Universities Sports Championships and European Universities Games, is offering students from Europe a unique opportunity of actively participating in the organisation of EUSA events as volunteers.
In 2013, students can participate as supporting organisers of the European Universities Football Championship in Almeria (Spain).
You may register at http://volunteers.eusa.eu; the deadline is approximately three month before the event, and you will be notified about your selection a week after the application deadline for a specific event.
The exact application deadline for the EUC Football 2013 is March 22.
The main aim of the Program is to give a chance for young students, who are interested in sports and in organizing sport events, to get the opportunity of experiencing a unique adventure, learning about the values of sport, and gaining valuable work experience through volunteering.
The participants will raise their competencies and skills in organising sport event in the European level, get new experiences in different fields, will be useful for the organising committee, exchange knowledge, learn about the culture of the country, get new friends all over the Europe and much more.
The Volunteer Programme includes for example working for the organising committee, supporting the organizers in the competition fields (global coordination, manning information desks, communication between organization committee and referees, guests).
In the frame of the Volunteer Program, full board is provided during the time of the event (and training), with transfer from the official airport/station covered; volunteers only have to ensure their travel costs to the event.
