Whenever organizers put together international sporting events, volunteers play an important role. Here's how unpaid workers are making it happen at the Winter Asian Games.
These young people are working as volunteers...and helping with the 7th Winter Asian Games. They're picking up their access passes and clothes at the main press center, all hoping to contribute and make the Games a success.
Around 4,000-to-5,000 people signed up to become volunteers. Finally, 2,200 were chosen for the Games.
Knowing a foreign language helps. Some Chinese students studying in Kazakhstan are among the volunteer workers.
