I promise to give of the time in my life, so that Special Olympics athletes can have the time of their lives.
I promise to support Special Olympics not just as an expression of charity, but as a form of respect for my fellow human beings.
I promise to spread the word of volunteerism because in giving, I receive so much more in return.
Special Olympics Texas would not exist today and could not have been created without the time, energy, and dedication of thousands of volunteers. More than 38,236 volunteers dedicate their time to help children and adults with intellectual disabilities achieve their dreams. On behalf of the athletes we serve, thank you for your interest.
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. Volunteers participate in an orientation prior to working with our athletes.
