Without volunteers, Special Olympics Northern California would not exist. We depend on the time, energy and dedication of thousands of energetic volunteers to fulfill our mission.
Today we boast the extraordinary support and time of 20,000 volunteers and volunteer coaches.
ANYONE can get involved! Special Olympics volunteers include students, retirees, corporate groups, professionals, civic organizations, and families. If time is limited, day-of-event volunteer opportunities are available to people as young as 10 years of age, as long as they are accompanied by their parent or guardian. Coaches and others can start at 14.
