Volunteers will be the life of the 30th Summer Universiade. Five thousand people have responded so far to the recruitment campaign started on March 18th. They will take part in the event scheduled for July working in the sports venues, receiving international delegations, participating in operational activities and contributing to communication and promotional activities: A unique opportunity in the world of competitive sport. More than 400 applications come from abroad: 31 from Africa, 135 from Asia and Oceania, 35 from the Americas and 238 from the rest of Europe.
During the selection meetings starting in Naples on May 16th, everyone will be proposed a functional area and a venue in which to carry out his own activities. Different options will be indicated on the basis of each candidate’s inclinations and CVs. Once the functional area has been chosen, candidates will sign an agreement with the Organizing Committee and effectively enter the Napoli 2019 team. The selections will continue later in the other provinces of Campania, where the need for personnel is remarkable. Most volunteers will get involved from July 3rd to 14th. Despite that, they may start earlier or end after these dates. There is still time to join the “UniVolontà” team.
