Become a Volunteer + Get Started

Getting Started as a Volunteer

There are many ways to be involved with Special Olympics Delaware. Finding the right fit for you is critical and with so many options within the organization we know it can be hard to choose how and when to volunteer your time. In making those decisions, we hope you evaluate if you can associate it to your profession, if are you a student your skills and abilities, and the time you have to give. All of these factors will help you find the role that will fit best within the organization and… no matter what role you choose, they all play a vital part in getting our athletes off of the sidelines and into the game.

Sport Volunteer

Sport Volunteers serve in roles that have active and continual interaction with our athletes. The most popular role is that of a coach. Team assistants and Unified Partners (both youth and adult) are also volunteers critical to the success of our sport programs.

General Volunteer

General Volunteers serve in key roles year round in the office and at sporting and fundraising events. These roles include but are not limited to Photographers, Camp Counselors, Athlete Mentors, and Committee Members and Office Assistants.

Event Volunteer

Special Olympics Delaware holds several sports and fundraising events throughout the year all across the state. The events are possible thanks to hundreds of Event Volunteers who come out to execute the various aspects of the event. This includes roles such as registration check-in, logistics, hospitality, referees and officials, fans in the stands, and so many more.
