Volunteerism

Description

Operating a successful Olympic Winter Games requires an army of people. With hundreds of thousands of spectators, and thousands of athletes, coaches and media arriving at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, it was obvious very early on that much of the required workforce would need to be volunteers.

Student Outcomes

Students learn about the benefits of volunteering and ways to maximize volunteering experience through research, writing and brainstorming tasks.

Special Features

The Volunteerism resource includes a case study on the importance of volunteers in running the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games, case questions for students, and a teacher’s guide including case extentions to further challenge students.
