Friendship starts with you

We invite you to become part of the big World Friendship Games family

Volunteers do not climb medal podiums, nor are they cheered on by the crowds. They are always behind the scenes. But their powerful energy and service makes up the backbone of the Games

Thanks to volunteers, thousands of spectators will long remember the greatest moments of the Games

Volunteers will help the athletes feel at home and achieve their best possible results

The organisers will make every effort to ensure comfortable working conditions for volunteers and to coordinate their activities

Volunteers are born leaders! What sets them apart is their energy, which drives them to take an active stance in life, to help others, and to do something exciting and useful.

Without their participation it is impossible to imagine such a large-scale and important tournament as the World Friendship Games
