Volunteer Opportunities

Special Olympics North Carolina needs help throughout the year in our office and warehouse.  We handle data entry for newly registered athletes and volunteers.  We maintain a large warehouse with almost everything that you need for a sports event and use various items throughout the year so we need volunteers to keep it all in order.  Please signup online or email with questions.  We welcome groups of 4 or 5 to join us as well.

We have programs throughout the state with year round programs.  These a few of the upcoming events.

Cabarrus County is looking for volunteers for their Bowling competition November 17th. Check out the shifts and sign up online.

Forsyth County is looking for help at their Bowling Tournament Friday mornings in November and December. Check out the available shifts online and sign up!

Mecklenburg County is actively looking for volunteers for their Winter Games in January and February. Check out the opportunities and sign up here.

Wake County is looking for volunteers for their Basketball Skills Competition this winter. Check out the shifts and sign up here.

Each program has a local committee that assists the Local Program Coordinator in all of their program needs. Click here to see what opportunities are available or visit your local program's page.
