Volunteer

Each year Special Olympics Iowa's (SOIA) programs are assisted by 14 volunteer area directors, more than 2,000 volunteer certified coaches and 15,000 other volunteers. It is no exaggeration to say that SOIA programs and services could not exist without the generous volunteer spirit of so many Iowans.

Volunteers provide valuable assistance to our athletes in each of our state games, competitions and special events. Volunteer assignments include announcers, award presenters, escorts, recorders, starters, timers and many other valuable positions. Volunteer opportunities are available for individuals, families, corporate teams, groups, etc. at the local level in communities across the state as well as at the statewide level for events coordinated directly by Special Olympics Iowa. Local program and fundraising events are managed by the area directors, to contact the individual for your area, please click here. The staff at SOIA will make every effort to match each volunteer's time and talent to the available tasks to create an atmosphere that is comfortable and inviting for all parties.
