Thank you for applying to be a Class A volunteer! Volunteers are the backbone of the Special Olympics movement. The most valuable traits you can offer are your time and willingness to provide the greatest athletes around the best experience possible.

Class A Volunteers are volunteers who have regular, close physical contact wtih athletes, are in a position of authority or supervision with athletes, are in a position of trust of athletes, and/or handle substantial amounts of cash or other assets of the program. Class A volunteer opportunities range from event management and coaching, to fundraising and volunteering on the day of an event. In most cases, experience is not needed and training will be provided no matter what position you select.
