Health. Inspiration. Friendship.
First Stars, this is your time to inspire.
Hosting any major sporting event wouldn't be the same without the tremendous contribution of its volunteers. The passion, inspiration and friendship they bring to their roles is truly spectacular and it’s what makes the difference between a good Games and a great Games.
Volunteers provide support to a wide range of operational areas whilst also creating an electric atmosphere for both athletes and spectators at Games time. Our volunteers for Ashgabat 2017 are called First Stars.
We need up to 10,000 of the best First Stars who are passionate, friendly and ready to showcase the rich culture of Turkmenistan. First Stars, this is your time to inspire.
