How Can I Sign Up as a Volunteer During Beijing 2008 Olympics?
Adjust font size:


I live in USA and have a 15 years old daughter who would like to volunteer during Olympic in Beijing.

Could you let me know how to sign her up?

She speaks English, Chinese, and Italian. I myself am a native Beijing born Chinese.

Best Regards,

Ann Pandit
