Volunteers are the backbone of Caledon Special Olympics. We are constantly looking for coaches and volunteers to work to provide sport and competition opportunities to our athletes. Our volunteers organize, run and fundraise to provide our athletes the opportunity to participate in sport programs.

Our volunteer positions and opportunities are varied and if a volunteer has the desire to help individuals that have an intellectual disability then Caledon Special Olympics has a position they can fill. Volunteers fill a number of roles at the community level, which include head coach, coach and junior coach in addition to administrative team positions on community council. Parents and community members are encouraged to participate in volunteer activities that support and help our athletes succeed.

When you align your passions with volunteer work, the most uninteresting task can be brought into a whole new light. When you become passionate about the cause of Caledon Special Olympics is when your work is going to have the biggest impact.
