First Youth Olympics Games (and is in Singapore!)

Taekwondo, a martial art sport, involves the use of both hands and legs to overcome an opponent. The trademark of the sport is its combination of kick movements. Athletes will be competing in five weight categories per gender during the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games.


How to volunteer

There’re two ways to become a YOG Volunteer:

1. If you’re a student, there’re many opportunities to get involved in the YOG through your school:
- For students in the ITEs, polytechnics, and universities, please approach your student affairs office for more information or click here.
- For students in the primary and secondary schools, and junior colleges, please bear with us a little longer. We're working closely with the Ministry of Education to come up with exciting opportunities for you to be part of the YOG heartbeat. In-the-works are the Schools-NOC Twinning Programme where your school may get to host youths from other parts of the world, and other ways for you to be involved through your CCAs such as NCC, NPCC, photography, student presenters, and many more. Watch this space for more announcements in the coming months!

2. If you’ve already left school, and will be at least 18 years old on 1 March 2010, we welcome you to register with us as an individual volunteer (please click here). By understanding what’s involved in becoming a YOG Volunteer, you can tell us what you can do and like to do, and we will do our best to match you to the right volunteering opportunities.
3. Individuals, who possess technical or specialist expertise with regards to specific sports, can also consider approaching the respective National Sports Associations (NSAs). Your expertise might be put to better use with the NSAs. Please click here.
Like an Olympic athlete, a YOG Volunteer needs heaps of passion and commitment because you will need to train for your job, and there will be a lot of hard work during the Games (but also lots of fun!).
