Looking to get involved with your community in a meaningful way?
Special Olympics Oregon volunteers are fundamental to every single program and event across the state. Volunteer opportunities range from coaching and program management to event volunteers and administrative support. There is a role for everyone. Due to COVID-19 safety concerns, we are not able to offer in-person sports training, competitions and events at this time.
See below for virtual volunteer opportunities.
Our Winter Virtual Sports Season, which ended on April 2, was great!
Our Summer Virtual Season will be May 31 - July 30. Check back then to see how you can create encouraging videos, be virtual fans in the stands, be a social media advocate, or make cheer cards!
Virtual Volunteer: Esports Manager
Our athletes are competing in E-sports! They play Rocket League on Mondays!
We have opportunities for people to volunteer to help create private matches, support with admin controls, oversee streaming, etc. Need to be available Monday evenings 5:45 pm - 7:30 pm.
Virtual Volunteer: SOOR Active
We are seeking volunteers to engage athletes from the safety of their own home! Volunteers can showcase some of their skills or knowledge for our athletes online. You can teach a class, host an activity, or share a talent via webcam or Zoom. This is a great way to help connect volunteers and athletes during these very isolating times.
Join our Facebook group SOOR Active and check out the activities that we’re offering.
Email us at email@example.com and tell us what you want to do/teach/lead to help keep our athletes engaged!
Coaches play a unique role in Special Olympics Oregon, working hands-on with athletes to provide the sports, skills and spirit they need to compete. We are not able to offer our traditional in-person sports training and competitions at this time. We are offering Virtual Sports Seasons supported by local and statewide coaches and mentors.
Local Program Leadership
Join the volunteer management team and help make an ongoing difference to your local community. Volunteers coordinate sports, register athletes, communicate with families, reach out to the community, raise funds, and more. It’s fun to work together with your local group. Find a program near you.
