Volunteer Opportunities

Special Olympics North Carolina is hosting the 2018 Southeast US Regional Swimming Invitational at Greensboro Aquatic Center. We are currently looking for a variety of volunteers for Sunday, April 22nd.  Please sign up online here. If you would like to serve in another capacity please email and let us know where you would prefer to volunteer.

Special Olympics North Carolina is holding the annual Plane Pull fundraiser at RDU airport. Teams of 5 will pull a 30,000 pound plane 25 feet to see who can do it the fastest.  There are multiple divisions and the winners get bragging rights and a big trophy.  We need volunteers to make this all happen.  Please sign up to volunteer online.

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.
