What do IOI 2016 volunteers do?

Volunteers supply willing, unpaid support to the organisers of IOI 2016. They provide a variety of valuable services: meeting delegations and guests at the airport and train station, helping participants with registration and accreditation, accompanying teams and guests, working in the press-centre, preparing and providing food and accompanying those on excursions, working in the organisation committee headquarters, and more.

You do not need any specialist knowledge or qualifications to become a volunteer. What is important is proactivity, a desire to work, and good communication skills. In return the work will provide volunteers with invaluable communications skills and administrative experience.
