truly are the very backbone of
the Special Olympics Maine
Each year, Special
Olympics Maine volunteers make it possible for more than 4,000
persons with intellectual disabilities to receive training and conditioning
in a host of sports and recreational activities which enrich
their lives. Without volunteers
assisting Special Olympics athletes, coaches, and families,
it would be impossible
to provide these life-enriching experiences.
There are many ways in which a person can become involved.
Each person may predetermine how much time they wish to invest
in Special Olympics on a weekly, monthly, or annual basis.
Most first-time volunteers work by offering services
which support the activities of the local/area
programs, by volunteering at an Area event. Our Areas are broken up according to counties in the state. So, if you live in Portland, you would volunteer for the Cumberland Cty program, etc
Regardless of the
level of interest and measure of time you may wish to contribute,
every person is welcomed to participate at their own pace.
If you want to volunteer in your community, at the Area level, please check out our Area Programs page (top left), select the county, and you will find the contact info for the Area Manager. Ask them to add you to their volunteer email list.
