Volunteering with Special Olympics.

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.
