Volunteers are How!

This is where volunteers learn how to get involved     

Looking for a place to volunteer? Want to feel the joy of watching athletes with intellectual disabilities work hard and excel in the various sports? Need to earn Community Service Requirements for high school graduation or church requirements? Whether you are looking for a few hours a week or month or a larger commitment, whether you can help with administrative/office work, fundraising or want to work hands-on coaching the athletes, Special Olympics Montgomery County welcomes you!

Individuals interested in volunteering are encouraged to attend a Volunteer Orientation before working directly with Special Olympics athletes. The next scheduled volunteer orientation will be on Wednesday, February 28 from 6:30 to 8 pm at the Potomac Community Center on Falls Road in Potomac, MD. Individual volunteers must be at least 16 years old or a freshman in high school. (A limited number of volunteer opportunities are available for younger volunteers when participating with our “Junior Sports Programs” and under adult supervision* see additional information below). Additionally, families who are new to our program are strongly encouraged to attend a volunteer orientation as well. The orientation will provide participants with a better understanding of what Special Olympics Montgomery County has to offer as well as our goals and needs.
