Registration opens to become a volunteer for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games: how to apply?

  • Registration to become a volunteer for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games opens this Wednesday, March 22, 2023 for a period of six weeks.
  •     The organizers of the event are looking for 45,000 volunteers in total.
  •     We tell you everything you need to know if you want to try your luck.

Who can apply?

Anyone can apply, provided they are 18 years old on January 1, 2024 and speak French and/or English. You must be available for a minimum of 10 days and a maximum of three consecutive months during the period. The organizers of the event are looking for a total of 30,000 people for the Olympic Games (July 26 to August 11) and 15,000 others for the Paralympic Games (August 28-September 8), including 5,000 volunteers outside the Paris region.  As accommodation is not provided, volunteers will be directed to the events taking place near their homes.

How to register?

To try your luck, you have to go to the Paris 2024 portal and fill out a questionnaire. Registration will take place from March 23 to May 3 inclusive. Once registered, the applications will be sorted according to the answers. The volunteers selected by the organizers will be notified before the end of the year. Some of them will be invited to participate in test events that will take place this summer, notably for handball, rowing and open water swimming.

Note that the platform will be shared with the city of Paris, which needs 5,200 additional volunteers.

For which missions?

The volunteers' missions will mainly concern the reception of competitors, spectators and media. However, there will be no question of security checks. Each volunteer will be equipped with a Decathlon uniform, will have one paid meal per day and will be reimbursed for transportation to the site, but no more. Most of the events will take place in Paris and the Ile-de-France region, except for sailing (Marseille), shooting (Châteauroux), basketball for the group stages and handball for the finals in Lille, and soccer and surfing in Tahiti.

The main steps to apply :


  1. March 22, 2023 Opening of the volunteers' portal
  2. April - September 2023  Study of the applications by Paris 2024
  3. September - December 2023 Feedback to candidates.

Will I be paid as a volunteer?

Being a volunteer is a voluntary, unpaid commitment.

Being a volunteer is an opportunity to experience the first Summer Games to be held in France in a century from the inside. In return, Paris 2024 is committed to providing the best possible experience for all volunteers.

Paris 2024 will cover the costs of your use of the local public transportation system and your catering. In addition, you will be provided with a uniform so that you can carry out your mission in the best conditions.
