The House of Sport Volunteers, a flagship global initiative that connects skilled volunteers with receiving organisations, such as events’ organisers, sport organisations, NGOs, foundations, and other strategic partners from sport and beyond, was officially launched today, marking a significant milestone in promoting volunteering in sport.

The launch took place through a virtual kick-off meeting, bringing together experts from a range of institutions, international organizations, NGOs, representatives from the world of sport, grassroots initiatives, and academia. 

This ground-breaking initiative provides a platform that aims to support sport volunteerism and the promotion of its educational and societal values across communities, by connecting and supporting volunteers in sporting events of any size and sport-based projects, providing a global database of Sport Volunteers’ profiles, volunteering opportunities, and a unique offer of training, educational programmes, certification of skills and competencies.

Shaped across three years of research and testing implemented thanks to the support of the European Union, The House is aligned with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and other United Nations frameworks like UNESCO Fit for Life.
