Volunteers of Northern (Arctic) Federal University (NArFU) will serve transport infrastructure of the Sochi Olympic Games.
Northern Arctic Federal University (NArFU), situated in the city of Arkhangelsk, became one of 26 educational institutions of Russia, which got the right to open the center of attraction of volunteers for participation in the organization and carrying out of XXII Olympic and XI Paralympic Games in Sochi. Now the center is at the stage of formation. One of the activists, the vice-president of student's self-government, the student of the 4th course of Institute of Economics NArFU Denis Bobin told about its problems and prospects to the «Olympic Reporter»:
A victory in competition for the right to train volunteers for XXII Olympic and XI Paralympic Games in Sochi is a great honor for us. There was very tough selection. We applied and won in nomination «Transport». According to the certificate, the experts, who learned in NArFU, will serve transport infrastructure of the Sochi Olympic Games. They will work as guides, navigators, traffic controlers etc. During Olympic Games-2014 we expect the great traffic stream in the city and vicinities, it considerably complicates work of all services, including volunteers. The fact, that volunteer center will be based on NArFU, doesn't mean that only students will study there. We expect, that people of different ages and trades, who are wishing to help with carrying out of the Olympic Games will come to us. It is also important, that work of our center won't end right after the Games in Sochi. We have set tasks for prospect. With the certificate for foundation of volunteer center we have got also the right to found the whole complex, working according to the requirements of concrete region. The great number of events is spent in Russia the Student's Games, for example, where we wouldn't manage without participation of volunteers. Therefore, I think, our children will be called-for in, and after 2014.
