As Abu Dhabi prepares to host the most unified World Games in the 50-year history of Special Olympics, welcoming more than 7,000 athletes in 2019, the organising committee is looking to hire as many as 20,000 volunteers from the region.

This is the first time ever when as many as 170 countries will be competing in 24 sports; it's safe to say that this will be the BIGGEST humanitarian event in the world.

Areas available for volunteers include sports, technology, event, medical, delegation assistance liaison, communications, operations, guests service, language service and protocol.

In fact people with intellectual disabilities can also apply for these positions.
