A project, fruit of ideas and competences MADE in Friuli Venezia Giulia, promoted and led by the Organising Committee with the involvement of the Regional Departments, the regional CONI and the Universities.

Based on the philosophy of exchange and growth, the important mission of EYOF 2023 is to bring together young people from all over Europe through a recruitment campaign that will create a team of volunteers (not technicians) active on the competition fields.

This is a unique job experience that allows young people to become part of the team of a great Olympic project and that is of great benefit in terms of training professional skills.
