On May, 14th, 2011, 1000 days prior to the beginning of XXII winter Olympic Games, volunteer centers «Sochi- 2014» all over Russia started working.

 They were opened in 26 high schools on a competitive basis. Voluntary initiatives «Sochi- 2014» will be based on principles of the Olympic armistice and will unite the best volunteer projects of Europe. Dmitry Chernyshenko, the president of Organizing committee «Sochi-2014» gave the letter with the description of the project to the president of the IOC Jacque Rogge. «We have a fine tradition to pass burning volunteer heart. It symbolizes our unselfish desire to help. We promise to light a flame of the Olympic armistice in the hearts of citizens of our country, and Europe», — the Russian volunteers wrote in their letter to the head of the IOC.

Popular social networks will become ground for the project. On February, 7th, 2012, in day of the beginning of mass applications for work as volunteers of the Games-2014, the results — a scrappy blanket from the most courageous, bright and significant volunteer projects of Europe will be presented. In total at carrying out of XXII winter Olympic Games in Sochi there will be involved about 25 thousand volunteers in more than 20 spheres of activity — from meetings of delegations at the airport to the help in the organization of a closing ceremony of the Games.
