Unified Sports: Play on the same team as Special Olympics athletes. Special Olympics Unified SportsĀ® combines people with (traditional Special Olympics athletes) and without intellectual disabilities (called Partners) on sports teams for training and competition; dramatically increasing inclusion in the community and using sports to help break down barriers that have historically kept people apart.

Management Team Volunteer: Special Olympics relies on the expertise of community members to support the success of our programs. Management team members serve on committees that work on development, public relations, and more.

Student Intern: Student internships are available in the areas of public relations, resource development, volunteer management, sports management, delegation and games management, community outreach, and more.

Become a Mentor: Just as our athletes need sports coaches to help them develop fitness and sports skills, they also need coaches, mentors and facilitators to help develop their leadership skills. What they need most is you!  All you need is a little time and the desire to make a difference in the life of an athlete. We teach you the rest!
