The Office of the Pacific Games is proud to be partnering with the Volunteer Services Abroad to secure qualified and suitable volunteers for the upcoming Samoa 2019 Pacific Games.

In July 2019, Samoa will host the Pacific Games – 22 countries, 26 sports, 5000 people.

The Office of the Pacific Games in Apia has identified areas where they need support so we have some fantastic, short-term, event-based assignments available for people keen to pass on their skills.

The assignments will run from the end of January 2019 for seven months. Your costs are covered, including a daily allowance.

In collaboration with your local counterpart, you will form the volunteer management team, training them to lead a large group of volunteers.  The training will involve developing and implementing a plan that will facilitate the smooth running of the Games. You will be responsible for creating and delivering training programmes as well as reporting and providing feedback loops on lessons learnt from the Games.
