Special Olympics Arizona 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.
This event will be held at the Southern and Dobson campus of Mesa Community College on April 25 through April 27 (Thursday, Friday, and Saturday).
At Summer Special Olympics, we have many ways for people to volunteer. Tasks include, but are not limited to, the following:
Checking volunteers in/out
Passing out shirts
Directing athletes or volunteers to their next location
Assisting with set-up and take down
Staging (helping athletes to get in the correct order)
Picking up trash and recycling
Your involvement will be different depending on the needs during your Summer Special Olympics shift. Please be flexible if there is a higher need for your service in a different area than what you initially signed up for.
Please note, no previous sports background is required to help.
