    Any person regardless of sex, race and religious denomination can become a volunteer of the Winter Universiade Krasnoyarsk 2019. There is only one restriction: by the time of the event a volunteer shall be 18 year old. This is the general rule for the most part of the international sport competitions. At the same time the Winter Universiade Krasnoyarsk 2019 is the sport competition of youths and students. That is why those candidates who by March 2019 will be at the age of 16 are allowed to be appointed to the certain positions (for instance, “city volunteers”). There is no upper age limits. Those candidates at the age of maturity who are older than 50 and 60 (so called “silver volunteers”) also can apply for being volunteers of the Winter Universiade Krasnoyarsk 2019.

    What are the volunteers’ functional responsibilities and duties?

    Generally four groups of volunteers can be selected depending upon the functional area and training requirements.

    “Volunteers of public profile” are the volunteers appointed to those positions where special professional skills are not required (hotels and accommodation units, information centres, opening and closing ceremonies, transport, logistics, etc.).

    “Volunteer specialists” are the volunteers appointed to those positions where special professional skills and experience are required (medical, software support, television centres, volunteers working as interpreters’ and translators’, journalists’, emergency response groups’, guides’ assistants, etc.).

    “Sports volunteers” are the volunteers who will actually assist the competition organization process. They need a good knowledge of sports, and certain groups shall have special athletic skills.

    “City volunteers” are the volunteers who will create atmosphere of the hospitable and comfortable city and help the guests to familiarize themselves with Krasnoyarsk in the best way.

    Details of the key volunteer positions can be found here.

     

    Team-leaders and supervisors. Who are they?

    Totally 5000 volunteers will be involved in the Winter Universiade Krasnoyarsk 2019 organization and delivery. There is a need for managers of experience and capacity to observe and control such a great amount of young people. First and foremost, these managers are chosen from amongst of the volunteers. Volunteer management system provides for a choice and training of 50 team-leaders and 400 supervisors.

    Team-leader is a manager for the whole team of volunteers working at the site (certain selected venue of facility) (for instance, the volunteers’ team-leader of the “Rassvet” Ice Palace). The team-leader can manage a group of 50-300 volunteers.

    Supervisor is a volunteer coordinating the work of volunteers involved at the site (certain selected venue of facility) within the particular functional area (for instance, the volunteers’ supervisor of the “Rassvet” Ice Palace within the functional area “Spectators services”).

     

    Where will reside those volunteers coming from other cities?

    Volunteers from other cities will live in a separate modern and comfortable residential facility at the student housing estate “Peria” located within the territory of Siberian Federal University. Housing estate “Peria” is a complex of three seventeen storey buildings located alongside the Village of the Winter Universiade Krasnoyarsk 2019. Volunteers from other cities will live in triple rooms with bathrooms, furniture and all the required equipment. Shops, beauty salons, leisure centres, engineering and service rooms are in a short distance from the housing estate.

    Will the volunteers attend the special training?

    Involvement in such a great international event as the Winter Universiade Krasnoyarsk 2019 requires a high level of training. The special programme for training volunteers has been developed to provide the Winter Universiade Krasnoyarsk 2019 volunteers with general skills and experience concerning the Winter Universiade Krasnoyarsk 2019, and special skills required for work in any particular functional area. Moreover, each volunteer will be given detailed instructions at the site (working area of the certain venue of facility).

    Training programme duration and content depend upon the volunteer’s position. Training period for team-leaders is 2 years, supervisors and volunteer specialists – 1 year, volunteers of public profile – up to 6 months.

    Financing of the programme for training volunteers is provided by the Winter Universiade Krasnoyarsk 2019 general partner – “Nornickel Group”.
