Central Volunteers Packages
Registration for central volunteers at WYD Lisbon 2023 is now open – access to registration services here.
The first registration phase for central volunteers ends on April 20th. All central volunteers with a paid registration by this date will be the first to be allocated to the areas in which they will work. This allocation will be communicated by May 20th.
More information about the registration process here.
All the information about what it is to volunteer at WYD and what it takes to be a volunteer is available here.
WYD is built with the generosity of all! All volunteers are therefore asked to contribute an amount, depending on the package they choose (with/without accommodation, food, etc.), covering part of the costs. Enrollment as a volunteer is only confirmed after the payment of this contribution.
The registration method may vary according to the Volunteer Registration Packages table – which always cover the period from 23 July to 7 August:
PACKAGE V1: includes accommodation, food, transport, insurance and volunteer kit - 145€
PACKAGE V2: includes food, transport, insurance and volunteer kit - 90€
PACKAGE V3: includes transport, insurance and volunteer kit (this is also the only package available for Parish Volunteers – who register through the respective Parishes of the Dioceses of Lisbon, Santarém and Setúbal) - 30€
PACKAGE V4: includes food only from 31st of July to 7th of August, transport, insurance and volunteer kit - 60€
The accommodation includes the provision of a common, covered space and supports sanitary facilities. These places can be in schools, pavilions, gyms, etc.
These accommodations will be open to welcome volunteers from the 22nd of July to the 7th of August.
Breakfast will be distributed at these locations every day of the week from July 23rd to August 7th, 2023, always for those who have selected the package that includes accommodation.
The night of the 5th to the 6th of August will be spent outdoors at the location of the Vigil and Missioning Mass of WYD Lisbon 2023. All volunteers must therefore bring the necessary material to sleep (sleeping bag, etc) in this area.
Volunteers belonging to the same group, who have chosen the package that includes accommodation, in principle, will be accommodated in the same place.
If the volunteer chooses the package that includes food, it will be guaranteed two meals per day during the period corresponding to the chosen package.
All registered volunteers/leaders will be guaranteed food for the night of August 5th and breakfast on the 6th, as they will all be at Parque Tejo at the final events of WYD Lisbon 2023.
This option includes a ticket to be used for the trips that each volunteer needs to do to carry out the activities assigned.
All volunteers will be covered by personal accident insurance in force from July 23rd to August 7th, 2023.
The registration of all volunteers also includes the delivery of the volunteer’s kit: a WYD backpack with official WYD Lisbon 2023 products. This kit will be delivered to the volunteer at the time of check-in.
The volunteers’ t-shirts will be the main identifier of the volunteers so that the pilgrims know who they are. The t-shirt should only be used if the volunteer is on duty. Whenever the person is not working as a volunteer, he/she should not wear a t-shirt.
There will also be other forms of identification for each volunteer: the credentials that will be delivered upon check-in.
