Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are the backbone of Special Olympics Utah.

In Utah, we count on over 4000 volunteers across the state. The time, energy and enthusiasm of volunteers fuel our movement and make our athletes’ dreams a reality.

At Special Olympics Utah, there is a place for everyone. At the end of the day, all volunteers have one thing in common, pride in knowing they are providing opportunities to individuals with intellectual disabilities.

See below for day of event volunteer opportunities, pick your event, and get registered!
