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.
This application is for NEW VOLUNTEERS only or volunteers who have been told to register as a current volunteer. This is NOT the background check for SOWA.
We provide volunteer opportunities ranging 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.
