Posted: Friday 29 July 2011

London 2012 Games Maker programme for volunteers for the Games

LOCOG has been progressing the London 2012 Games Maker programme for volunteers for the Games. They are now about to move forward with the one remaining aspect of the programme – volunteer roles for 16-18 year olds, to be known as Young Games Makers (YGMs).

Over 2,000 young people from across the UK will be recruited to take up volunteer roles vital to ensuring the successful delivery of the Games. Approximately 250 teams of young people, who must be aged 16 or over on 1 July 2012 and under 18 on 1 January 2012 will join the adult Games Makers next summer to help stage the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

LOCOG are inviting organisations such as youth or sports clubs, community and volunteering groups and schools and colleges that are members of the London 2012 Get Set network, to spend the next eight weeks reviewing the roles on offer and encouraging their young people to consider forming a team.

Key dates and details for the Young Games Maker application process are:

25 July 2011 onwards: Specialist recruitment begins direct through the relevant National Governing Bodies and other appropriate sporting bodies.

Those interested in the roles available through generalist recruitment will be able to review the roles, the skills required and find out more about the team application process at

22 September 2011 – 31 October 2011: Generalist applications received via the LOCOG website from team leaders from all recognised organisations such as volunteer organisations, sports clubs, community groups and schools and colleges that are members of London 2012’s Get Set network for the more numerous roles. Applications for Olympic Tennis Ball Boys and Girls and Wheelchair Tennis specialist roles also commence from 22 September.
