We had to because of my school, but I also want to do it because it’s an experience (Female, b. 1998)

Get the opportunity to ­participate (Male, b. 1975)”

This is a unique opportunity to gain experience that can help me in my career. Simultaneously, it will be a great experience to look back on (Female, b. 1989)

Because I will help to organise games for young people (Male, b. 1979)

I volunteer at Lillehammer’s matches in the Get ­League and can’t miss out on the Youth Olympic Games (Female, b. 1978)

To help my daughter’s figure skating club (HIL). And a fun and ­educational experience (Female, b. 1975)

To contribute, new experience, happening, social (Female, b. 1975)

I was encouraged by a friend (Female, b. 1953)

I actually thought of doing a master’s thesis on the Youth Olympic Games focusing on movement. Instead, I signed up as a volunteer, because I chose another theme that matched my job better. I think it’s fun to contribute to events, and this is definitely a big thing to be a part of! I like that it focuses on so many things other than just performance! (Female, b. 1982)

It’s relevant to my field of study (tourism) and an ­advantage to have on the CV (Female, b. 1992)

I’m involved in local sports. My club is the technical organiser, and I’m in charge of the races during the YOG (Female, b. 1980)

Social and exciting (Male, b. 1968)
