Become a Volunteer

Volunteers are vital to Special Olympics Utah!    

 


How do I get started?

  1. Determine what kind of volunteer you want to be by reading our Volunteer Job Descriptions.
  2. To get added to our Volunteer Database, fill out the General Volunteer Information form. This will put you on our volunteer contact list and we will email you when there are opportunities available in your area.
  3. To sign up to be a day-of volunteer for a specific event, visit our Volunteer Opportunities page. It is updated when volunteer registration opens for specific events.

What is the age requirement?

Event volunteers must be 16 years or older to volunteer independently.  Depending on the event, there are volunteer opportunities for youth ages 8 and up. Ages 8 – 15  must be accompanied by an adult (4 to 1 ratio for youth groups; 1 adult per every 4 youth). Children are welcome at our events, but anyone 7 years and younger will not be assigned any volunteer duties and are welcome to spectate and cheer as Fans in the Stands.

 

How do I sign-up a group of volunteers?

If you are interested in bringing a group of 6 or more out to volunteer for an event, send an email to volunteer@sout.org  to learn what opportunities are available. Youth groups are welcome with proper adult supervision (see age requirements).   We also have opportunities for Corporate Volunteerism.

 

Anything else?

A few days prior to your scheduled volunteer date read the Volunteer Handbook , bring your photo ID and enjoy making a difference!
