The deadline to join the Games team of volunteers is on January 22nd, exactly five months before the event starts. From that day on, the registration and the volunteer recruitment phase will be concluded and the operational phase will begin. In that phase, specialized trainings will be carried out, the volunteer areas will be granted and specific positions and needs of the Games will be established. The Mayor of Tarragona and President of the Games Organizing Committee has underlined that “we are completely satisfied with the recruitment phase participation. Now that we have brought it to an end, we can affirm that it has fully met our expectations. We are about to face the final stages, where we will define the operational needs of the Games and put the specific training program for the volunteers on display.”
In this last operational phase, the online management and formation program for volunteers is expected to launch as well. This tool will allow all the volunteers of the Games to digitally manage their personal profile and carry out the basic and specific formations online.
Via the campaign #ViuelsJocs, Tarragona 2018 makes a last call so all the people interested in taking part in the Mediterranean Games team of volunteers enrolls before January 22nd. The enrollment can be made at www.voluntaris2018.cat.
There are already more than 2,000 trained people
The volunteer recruitment for Tarragona 2018 kicked off on April 23rd, 2013, Saint George’s Day. Nowadays, more than 7,000 people coming from Tarragona, other towns and even other countries are registered. In those almost five years in which the recruitment will have been ongoing, more than 2,000 people will have been trained through the basic and additional formations done by the Department of Volunteers of the Games. Moreover, a thousand people will have participated in volunteer actions organized all over the territory.
We must emphasize on the fact that the majority of registered people are women (60%) between 16 and 25 years old (55%) with a university degree. Tarragona is the municipality with a greater number of enrolled people (30%).
