Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Special Olympics Washington, a year-round program providing sports training and competition for children and adults with developmental disabilities. We invite you to join the thousands of other volunteers who have made Special Olympics an exciting and enjoyable part of their lives!

Volunteers are a key source of support for Special Olympics athletes across the State of Washington. More than 8,500 people volunteer as coaches, assistant coaches, chaperones, committee members, fundraising volunteers, as well as many other areas. On a local level, many types of volunteer opportunities are available and the community is encouraged to get involved in neighborhood Special Olympics Washington programs.

Special Olympics Washington depends on - and succeeds because of - the time, energy, dedication and commitment of volunteers throughout the state.  Special Olympics Volunteers help to provide year-round sports training, athletic competition, and fundraising events for our athletes with intellectual disabilities.
