Toronto 2015 Pan Am / Parapan Am Games – The Drive for 20,000+ Volunteers

Thinking about how to fill the long summer days in 2015? Not yet? You should be!

 The summer of 2015 will see the largest international multi-sport Games ever hosted by our great nation right here in Toronto and the Greater Golden Horseshoe region, rather than watch it on television or from the stands, YOU could be a part of the action!

 Why should you volunteer for the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games? We can give you more than 20,000 reasons why…but how about having a sneak peek of the Pan Am Games Opening Ceremony created by Cirque du Soleil and getting up close to athletes, officials and international sport associations. There’s also exclusive promotions, events, and discounts on tickets and merchandise.

Don’t delay – volunteer interviews have begun and offer letters are sent in the fall of 2014. Apply now and be one of the first to tell the world what you will be doing in the summer of 2015!
