Become a Volunteer

Our volunteers are coaches, mentors, day of volunteers – you name it, we need YOU! As an organization dedicated entirely to our athletes, we couldn’t do what we do without you. If you’re interested in being more than a “day of” volunteer, please complete our Class A Volunteer Form  and take the online Protective Behaviors course. Both are needed in order to work directly with our athletes.

Read more about our volunteer opportunities.  Every Class A Volunteer must also complete our General Orientation online course.  Every Special Olympics Florida coach must now complete an online concussion training. Please click here to begin.

We accept donations in the form of cash or checks; or items such as water, food, transportation, office supplies, and equipment or shoes for our athletes.
