Paris 2024 intends to take on 35,000 to 45,000 volunteers in order to organise the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Volunteers are an essential part of the success of the Games, representing Paris 2024 in the eyes of the athletes, spectators and all Games stakeholders. Their positive attitudes and skills will contribute to the unique atmosphere of the Games. They are the first point of contact for everyone experiencing the Games – the spectators coming to Paris and the surrounding region, Bordeaux, Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Nantes, Nice, Saint-Etienne and Tahiti, the athletes that they will assist at all official sites (competition venues, the Athletes’ Village, airports, etc.) and everyone else involved in the Games whose work will be facilitated by the volunteers, such as journalists.
