Interested in volunteering?

Here are the various ways to get involved:

Competition & Special Event Volunteer: Help out at one of our sports competitions or special events! For a list of upcoming opportunities, please visit our News & Events  page.

Sports Coach/Volunteer: Work directly with Special Olympics athletes at weekly sports practices. View the list of sports offered in Walton County, and our the sports calendar.

Unified Sports: Play on the same team as Special Olympics athletes. Special Olympics Unified Sports® 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.

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!
