Registration begins for Olympic Equestrian Volunteers
[ 2006-11-24 09:37 ]

据香港奥马委消息,第29届奥运会马术比赛项目志愿者从11月23日起面向全球招募。凡在接受培训期间及奥运赛时能够合法出入香港并在香港居留的人士均可报名。

Around 1 800 Volunteers will be recruited by the Equestrian Company to help make the Olympic Equestrian and Paralympic Events in August and September 2008 respectively in Hong Kong a smooth operation.

Those interested in applying to become a Volunteer can now register at www.equestrian2008.org

At a Press Conference to kick off recruitment of the Volunteers, Chief Executive Officer of the Equestrian Company, Mr Lam Woon-kwong, said the objective of the Volunteers Programme was to encourage and provide opportunity for the community to participate in and contribute to the Equestrian Events.

It was the very first time that the Olympic and Paralympic Games would be held on Chinese soil, Mr Lam added.

The role of the Volunteers is to complement the work of the full- and part-time staff. Their prime duties are to assist athletes, working staff, spectators, guests and other visitors in 2008 and in August next year, when the Test Event will be staged.

Mr Lam said the Volunteers would undergo various types of training which included residential, weekend and evening training as well as on-site practice.

Applicants can be persons of all nationalities who have the right to enter and stay in Hong Kong during the training and service periods.

Residential training would be done over long holidays so as not to disrupt the Volunteers' normal work.

While recruitment would be done in stages, Mr Lam said, the first 90 to 100 Volunteers would be trained as leaders to help train the others.

Proficiency in Cantonese, Putonghua and English is a prerequisite for these "trainer Volunteers".
