Abstract: 

The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of Olympic Education program in the configuration of positive attitudes for volunteerism in the Olympic games of Athens in 2004 and to study the application of Theory Planned Behavior for volunteerism in major sport events. Three hundred twenty seven students of secondary education participated in the study. Two - hundred and twenty five of them have attended the program of Olympic Education for three consecutive years, while 102 did not attend any relevant course. Hierarchical regressing analysis showed that the three variables of model of Planned Behavior (attitudes, subjective norms and perceived behavior control) predicted student’s intention for volunteerism. Result from comparison between the two groups showed no significant differences (p>.05). The present findings provided strong evidence on the application of Theory Planned Behavior in the area of volunteerism in major sport events and suggest further investigation of the influence of the of Olympic Education program.
