Do something good for your community and yourself … VOLUNTEER!

Special Olympics would not exist today — and could not have been created — without the time, energy, commitment and enthusiasm of its volunteers. As a grass-roots organization, Special Olympics relies on volunteers at all levels of the movement to ensure that every athlete is offered a quality sports training and competition experience.  As we work to support over 7,000 athletes across the state, we welcome volunteers from all walks of life, experience, and interest to use their skills to help athletes succeed!
