VOLUNTEERS
AT THE GAMES

The volunteers are global representatives of Paris 2024 and France, playing an important role in the success of the Games. This diverse community of enthusiastic individuals will be on hand at all Olympic and Paralympic sites, offering everybody at the Games – including spectators, athletes, managers and journalists – an unforgettable experience. They will embark on a shared journey full of enriching, unique experiences. Paris 2024 is inviting anybody interested in playing a part in the largest event ever organised in France to apply via the volunteering platform in February 2023.

Being a volunteer

Volunteers make a commitment to give their time during the Olympic Games, the Paralympic Games or the test events that will take place before the competitions. There is a wide variety of Games volunteering opportunities to suit all interests, backgrounds and levels of experience. Everybody can apply from early 2023, whether they are in education, employed, retired or have a disability. You can sign up to the Paris 2024 Club for all the latest news between now and then. 


Volunteering opportunities

The Olympic and Paralympic volunteers will have a major role to play at all official Games venues and locations to assist participants and Games stakeholders as well as to greet and orientate spectators at venues open to the public. While all volunteers will be required to be able to speak fluent French or English, certain opportunities will require additional skills or qualifications. For example, they may need to understand the rules of a particular sport, speak a foreign language, have a first aid qualification or hold a driver’s licence.

The volunteering opportunities for the Games are split into six categories:

  • Greeting, orientation and assistance for spectators, participants and stakeholders
  • Operational support – sporting events
  • Operational support – organisation
  • Transport
  • Support for medical services
  • Support at ceremonies
