What does one do when facing an empty nest? Well, if you’re someone like YFU Field Director, Heather Clark, who’s accustomed to the cold, loves to volunteer, interact with people from across the globe, and who believes in building a better and more a peaceful world then, ‘why not volunteer at the Winter Olympics?’Heather has attended her fair share of Olympic games and after talking with a volunteer at the Vancouver games four years ago, decided that with her kids now off in college, it was the ideal time to volunteer and embark on her own incredible adventure.
With the Winter Olympics kicking-off in Sochi this Friday, she will be spending the next month, helping to prep the Men’s Alpine Sport ski courses. “I’m honored to have a unique experience to participate in the organization and staging of a grand world-class international sports event. I get to work side by side with volunteers from all over the world toward a common goal, to be a creator of the Winter Games in Sochi and be part of the legacy of one of the best Games in history.”
