31 July 2020

 The deadline to submit the applications for the European Young Olympic Ambassador Programme (EYOA) has been extended until the 21st of August 2020.

Candidatures were opened from 30 June 2020 to 30 July 2020.

The EOC has so far received applications from 20 NOCs of Europe, who have shown their commitment to spreading the Olympic values and mission in their countries and beyond.

Due to the summer break, the EOC would like to give the NOCs who are willing to take part in the programme more time to prepare the candidatures.

The EOC is looking for 50 young people aged 18 – 25, either Olympians who have taken part in European Youth Olympic Festivals (EYOF)/Youth Olympic Games (YOG), or people inspired by the Olympic Movement and Olympism. They are enthusiastic young people, good communicators with solid English skills, who are able to work both in a team or as individuals. They enjoy working in an international environment and they are highly motivated in developing new activities in their own countries.

For the EYOF Vuokatti 2021, which is scheduled to take place from 7 to 12 February 2021, the European Young Olympic Ambassadors will have three different duties: Facilitator, Promoter and Reporter.
