Volunteers are the backbone of Special Olympics Wisconsin

Special Olympics Wisconsin would not exist today and could not have been created without the time, energy, and dedication of thousands of volunteers. Our success is driven by the dedication of our thousands of event volunteers, agency managers, and coaches. If you are seeking a volunteer opportunity that can make a difference in your life and the lives of others, we need you!

Who Can Become a Volunteer?

Our volunteer base includes students, senior citizens, business groups, professional individuals, civic organizations, families, amateur and professional athletes, and coaches to name a few. In other words, ANYONE CAN GET INVOLVED!

There is no experience required; however, you must be at least 15 years of age, unless accompanied by an adult.
