Become a Volunteer
Special Olympics Connecticut could not exist today if not for the time, energy, and dedication of thousands of volunteers. Close to 10,000 volunteers dedicate their time to help children and adults with intellectual disabilities achieve their dreams annually here in our state.
Who Can Become a Volunteer?
Our volunteers are students, seniors, business groups, professionals, civic organization members, families, amateur and professional athletes and coaches, to name a few. In other words, ANYONE CAN GET INVOLVED!
