GET INVOLVED!
The Life you change may be your own
 
Change a Life, Volunteer Today

Special Olympics Kentucky would not exist today and could not have been created without the time, energy, and dedication of thousands of volunteers. Our 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; all events we ask that volunteers under 14 be accompanied by an adult.  However, some events and opportunities do have specific age and qualifications requirements and these will be labeled accordingly.

Volunteer registration process is different for Class A and Class B volunteers. For more on Volunteer Roles follow one or both of the following paths.
