Special Olympics North Carolina is looking for volunteers to assist with our regional swimming competition on April 28th at the Greensboro Aquatic Center.  Please signup online or email volunteers@sonc.net with questions.  All volunteers need to be 14 years of age or older. We welcome groups to join us as well.

Special Olympics North Carolina needs help throughout the year in our office and warehouse in the Raleigh area.  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 volunteers@sonc.net with questions.  We welcome groups of 4 or 5 to join us as well.

For information on coaching, volunteering at events, or getting involved with your local program, please fill out the Volunteer Interest Form! Volunteers will be added to our email database for information on future volunteer opportunities.
