Special Olympics volunteers inspire the greatness in each of our athletes by sharing their spirit and skills. In return, our athletes will help you remember why you love the sport and game.
Our volunteers are both role models and character-builders for our athletes. They give Special Olympics athletes the most immediate awareness of their own worth, ability, courage and capacity to grow and improve.
We would not exist today, without the time, energy, commitment and enthusiasm of people just like you, thousands of individuals who choose to take a little time from busy schedules to make the world a better place.

Experience the Rewards
Regardless of your level of sport or coaching experience, you can be the role model that inspires a Special Olympics athlete to achieve greatness. Often, Special Olympics volunteers find that the personal rewards received are equal to or even outweigh the benefits they offer the athletes.
Special Olympics coaches and partners get to experience the way sports should be. Our athletes are excited to play, respectful of players and officials, and devoted to their coaches. With a little encouragement from a volunteer like you, these exceptional athletes can do anything.
