Volunteers are the backbone of the Special Olympics movement. They are coaches, trainers, officials, event organizers, fundraisers, and managers. They can also be Unified Partners - playing alongside athletes with intellectual disabilities - or fans cheering in the stands.

Opportunities are available all year round, all over Virginia. Check out our calendar to find out what’s happening near you, and sign up for our volunteer updates!
