Activists of the volunteer center opened in the Sochi State University hold presentations of the Volunteer Center for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia in the educational institutions of the city. During the presentation, volunteers will tell schoolchildren and students about the upcoming World Cup, host cities and stadiums, 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup and the main aspects of the volunteer program.

Before going to schools, Head of the World Cup Volunteer Center Sergei Cheremshanov held a master class for volunteers on how to work with the audience properly.

"Thanks to this project, I am now starting to become involved in the World Cup, which will take place in 2018,” activist of the Sochi State University Volunteer Center Diana Bezhanyan said. “We will tell the students about the football values, the principles of fair play, which I'm sure, will be useful to them in real life. For me personally this is good practice to train my public speaking skills,” she said.

The local information campaign for attracting volunteers is currently being held in all faculties and colleges of the Sochi State University. In March, April and May 2016 the student of the university are going to present the volunteer program in all schools and universities of Sochi.
