Around 170,000 volunteers are needed for the Shanghai World Expo; recruitment has begun in May 2009. Of these, about 70,000 volunteers will provide services at the Expo site, and the others will serve elsewhere in the city. Each volunteer at the Expo site will work for 14 days and then take turns. Their work includes information inquiry, reception and guidance, interpretation, media services and more. For city volunteers, they will work at the volunteer service centre for inquiry, interpretation and emergency aid. The majority of the volunteers will be university students, and they will be recruited on campus at universities in Shanghai. 

Shanghai unveiled its World Expo volunteer logo, slogan and song on March 27, the 400-day countdown to the opening of Expo 2010. The volunteer logo includes the Chinese character '心'  for heart, the letter 'V' and a dove of peace carrying an olive branch. The character '心'  is to reflect the warm-hearted spirit of the volunteers, and the letter V stands for 'volunteer'. The volunteer slogan is 'At Your Service at Expo'. It has three sub-logos: 'My Will, My Help, My Pleasure', '2010, we're Together as One' and 'Our City, Your Joy'. The volunteer song is 'By Your Side'.
