The Bahamas Olympic Committee (BOC) is pleased to inform its member federations and the general public that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in conjunction with the BOC will once again host the Young Ambassadors Program on the occasion of the second edition of the Summer Youth Olympic Games, which will be in Nanjing, China, in 2014.

The primary role of Young Ambassadors is to encourage the athletes to actively participate in a number of learning experiences that take place in parallel to the competition program. Building upon the lessons from Singapore and Innsbruck, the IOC/BOC partnership is convinced that the role of each of the participants is central to the success of the Youth Olympic Games which seeks to offer a unique, life-changing experience to all participating athletes.

“In the true spirit of our Youth Olympic Games and the Bahamas Olympic Committee mission, we want to engage with young athletes and other young participants and inspire them to play an active role in their schools and communities,” said BOC Secretary General Romell ‘Fish’ Knowles through a press release.

The Young Ambassadors Program is open to any young, talented and dynamic man/woman, aged between 18 and 25. This position will have a real “added value” before, during and after the Youth Olympic Games. The Young Ambassadors will be a valuable member of the BOC’s Youth Olympic Games team headed by BOC Vice President Derron Donaldson. To turn this role into a successful contribution to Nanjing 2014, the Bahamas Olympic Committee has identified a number of key activities in which the young ambassadors should be involved: Before the Youth Olympic Games - motivating and informing the athletes about the Youth Olympic Games’ cultural and educational program; being part of the BOC’s educational or cultural activities for young people; and getting involved in the BOC’s communication efforts by reporting and/or promoting the upcoming Youth Olympic Games edition. Also, during the Youth Olympic Games - supporting the Chef de Mission in the Youth Olympic Games’ cultural and educational mission; and facilitating the participation of the delegation in the cultural and educational program.

The mandatory requirements for the program are: 18-25 years-old; positive and optimistic spirit; interest and experience in sport; communicative; encouraging and motivating; fluent English speaker (active and dynamic); good communicator (open-minded); available for the entire Young Ambassadors seminar and games time ability to influence/impact (charismatic); and active social media user (enthusiastic).

The deadline to submit a curriculum vitae is October 23, 2013.
