Become a Volunteer
Special Olympics Northern California relies on the support of more than 21,700
volunteers throughout the year.
Spend a day as an event volunteer or learn about becoming a coach for any of the
14 different sports available. No experience is necessary! Get your office, sorority/
fraternity, club or group involved and make a difference in the lives of Special Olympics
athletes. The experience will leave a lasting impression – and most volunteers return
for more. There are day-of-event opportunities for minors to volunteer beginning at
age 10 with a parent/guardian, and they are eligible to start coaching at 14. We make it
easy for anyone interested to sign up with a simple online process.
Visit www.VolunteerforSONC.org for more information or contact Belinda Sullivan at
email@example.com for upcoming opportunities and program details.
Dedicate your time as a Special Olympics volunteer coach! No experience or sports
background is necessary; just a passion for interacting and supporting our athletes,
a good attitude and availability roughly once a week for 6-8 weeks per season.
