The Games and Me – tell us your story
If you, or people you are working with have taken part in Olympic Inspired activity in the West Midlands, or have been inspired personally by the Games coming to London in 2012 then we are looking for people to tell us their experiences and/or upload their photos to www.facebook.com/thegamesandme for a chance to win a trip to the Olympic Park. You can also find more information on the WMfor2012 website.
Games Makers Opportunities
For young people aged 16 - 18
London Organising Committee (LOCOG) has recently announced over 2,000 new opportunities for 16-18 year olds to volunteer at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
LOCOG are looking for recognised organisations such as Get Set network schools and colleges, youth or sports clubs, and community and volunteering groups to put forward over 250 teams of young volunteers to help us fulfil vital roles and help make the Games happen.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for young people to get involved in the greatest show on earth – while learning new skills, gaining experience and making new friends.
Applications open 22 September 2011, but you can find out about the roles and recruitment process now.
