Throughout the entire Festival, the EYOWF Volunteer Team, who participated in organising the European Youth Olympic Winter Festival 2011, was continuously showered with praise from all sides. The five hundred-strong team did an excellent job, largely contributing to the success of the Festival. “We formed a great group, where the youngest members were fifteen and the oldest - Vladimír Velem, the attaché of the German team was ninety!”, says Vanda Šulcová, Volunteers Coordinator.
150 volunteers operated in the Olympic Village and another 250 helped with preparations at individual venues. One hundred more helped wherever they were required. For instance, thirty worked in the extensive communication service of the Festival, in the press centres, and at media points. “Six people came to help from abroad and over a third of the volunteers were students of the Technical University of Liberec,” Vanda Šulcová specified.
