If you are able to commit some time as an assistant coach or play alongside an athlete as a Unified Partner®, we can use your help! Special Olympics volunteers include students, retirees, professionals and families. You don’t need coaching experience or specific training working with persons with intellectual disabilities. We have great staff, mentor coaches and coaches training to get you going. If you are at least 14 years old and have a love of sports, time to commit and a willingness to make a difference, you can help us change lives.
