Special Olympics North Carolina!
Current volunteer opportunities
Special Olympics holds events throughout the state year-round.
Volunteers are the heartbeat of our organization and help make Special Olympics possible.
Class A Volunteers
Class A volunteers are volunteers serving in a leadership role with Special Olympics. This is any position of authority in Special Olympics including games management team members, coaches, chaperones, committee members, and anyone handling money on behalf of the organization.
Class A volunteers must:
- complete the 15 minute online Protective Behaviors Training
- fill out a Volunteer Screening Form granting SONC permission to run a background check on them. If you are serving in a Class A volunteer role, please reach out to your local coordinator to get the Volunteer Screening Form!
We care about your privacy! Please read the SONC Volunteer Privacy Statement to see what we are doing to protect your vital information.
Have you signed up to volunteer at one of our events? If you signed up online look in your inbox for an email from firstname.lastname@example.org or VolunteerLocal. If you need to cancel please cancel your shift within the VolunteerLocal via the email address that you used to signup.
For in-house volunteers please track your time and project here.
Being familiar with your job as a volunteer will make you more effective, ensure a quality event for the athletes and make your experience more enjoyable and rewarding. We appreciate your taking the time to review the provided materials.
Watch the athletes tell you how to best work with them!
