The 1500 city volunteers will join the 15,000 Games volunteers and will help spectators navigate their way round the city at Games time, provide information on the sports programme and entertainment zones and the many cultural activities on offer.
The volunteer programme is part of Host City Glasgow, a three- year programme to boost the impact of the Games on civic pride, volunteering and local communities.
The £1.7million scheme has been awarded £632,000 from the Big Lottery Fund and other funding from the council and Glasgow Life.
The programme will target communities and groups which may have encountered barriers in the past which prevented them getting involved in volunteering.
Volunteers will all live, work or study in the city and will receive training and support.
It is hoped many will use the opportunity as a springboard to improve their own lives or the lives of those in their local communities.
Glasgow Life chairman Archie Graham said: "These volunteers will be the face of Glasgow and will represent the real heart and soul of the city offering a welcome that's bursting with warmth, passion and pride.
"I have absolutely no doubt the people of Glasgow will be the magic ingredient that makes for the best ever Commonwealth Games and I am delighted that through the Host City Volunteer programme we can support individuals and communities to be part of that.
"We are absolutely committed to ensuring those who have faced barriers to volunteering, such as disabled people or those with caring responsibilities, will now be able to be part of the biggest celebration Scotland has ever seen."
