Secteur d’activité: EnvironnementActivité internationaleTout autre besoin bénévole
Montréal, Montré

One Young World is a UK-based charity that gathers together the brightest young leaders from around the world, empowering them to make lasting connections to create positive change. We stage an annual Summit where the most valuable young talent from global and national companies, NGOs, universities and other forward-thinking organisations are joined by world leaders, acting as the One Young World Counsellors. At the Summit, delegates debate, formulate and share innovative solutions for the pressing issues the world faces. The One Young World Summit 2024 will take place in Montréal, Canada from 18-21 September. Over 2,000 young leaders from 190+ countries will be attending the Summit digitally and in person, and we are looking for volunteers to represent Montréal as the host city by supporting these valuable individuals and showing them Montreal’s best hospitality. Some of these young leaders will have never left their home country before, and for others, this will be their first visit or experience of Canada. Apart from the Olympic Games, no youth dominated event represents as many countries. As a One Young World volunteer, you will be required to be flexible in your willingness to take on your assigned role, and you may be assigned to multiple roles throughout your placement. Your role will be allocated based on your availability and skill set given.
