Why Volunteer?

Volunteers are the backbone of Douglas County Special Olympics. If you are seeking a volunteer opportunity that can make a difference in both your life and the lives of others, Douglas County Special Olympics needs you. Many organizations utilize volunteers. But only with Special Olympics can you walk out on the athletic field and see how your time and effort has made an immediate impact. Whether you're coaching an athlete or helping to raise money, or helping take care of uniforms you're touching the lives of people who ask only for an opportunity to participate, succeed and grow. Special Olympics athletes work hard to overcome the odds, and they can do it - with your help. They deserve the chance to compete, the chance to grow and the chance to lead both on and off the playing field. Give them a chance and you will find it an incredibly rewarding experience for you, too.
