“With 7,000 athletes and 3,000 coaches representing 177 countries, along with 30,000 volunteers and an anticipated 500,000 spectators, the 2015 Special Olympics World Games – being staged in Los Angeles the summer of 2015 – will be the single biggest event in Los Angeles since the 1984 Olympic Games and the largest sports and humanitarian event in the world in 2015. That being said, nous avons besoin de bénévoles qui parlent français et qui sont disponibles pendant les “Special Olympics World Games,” entre le 20 Juillet et le 4 Août.
A Delegation Liaison (DL) is a critical position that requires you to be at least 20 years of age and have strong language skills (English plus French). A DL will need to be available around the clock from July 20 – August 4, 2015 to help bridge the gap between delegations and event staff and to help enhance the delegation’s experience at the World Games. What’s in it for you? You will be making a significant impact in the lives of the Special Olympics athletes coming to the Games. You also will be participating in the organization of a once-in-a-lifetime event, which makes for a GREAT resume item.
To apply to become a volunteer for Delegation Services for the Special Olympics World Games, please reply to chloe.cavelier@LA2015.org using the subject line ’French Delegation Liaison’. There are plenty of other roles for volunteers with language skills; for more information about the other opportunities, visit http://www.la2015.org/volunteer/language-services-volunteer.”
