They contribute silently and actively convey positive energy. Together, they interpret the essence of the spirit of volunteer service with practical actions.Among these volunteers, there is no lack of young volunteers from Shantou who escort the Winter Olympics with their perseverance and dedication.Recently, a number of volunteers from Shantou returned to their hometown after volunteering for the Beijing Winter Olympic Games. They came to the Executive Committee of The Asian Youth Association of Shantou To share their experiences and volunteer spirit online and offline.
