Continuing the powerful legacy and spirit of volunteerism from the Olympic Games Beijing 2008, the Organising Committee plans to recruit 27,000 volunteers for the Olympic Winter Games and 12,000 volunteers for the Paralympic Winter Games. The volunteers selected will have the unique opportunity to work in one of the Beijing, Yanqing and Zhangjiakou competition zones and play a valuable role in a variety of areas such as sport, media operations, language services and technology.
