Our volunteers are the main driver for the Special Olympics movement. Over the past year they have made tremendous efforts to connect with our athletes virtually, coach them online, provide virtual training sessions, and spend a tremendous amount of hours doing whatever it takes to better the lives of our athletes.

There are not enough words to thank you, but we hope this page is a start. We encourage everyone to write a message for volunteers who have made an impact in your life by hitting the “Share a message” button near the bottom of this page. Your message will be populated for everyone to read after you submit it.

We want to thank you, our amazing volunteers, through the stories, messages, and videos shared from our members because without you, our movement would not be possible.

Become a Volunteer

"The past year has been challenging and while we have had to adapt to many changes, one thing has remained constant – the support and commitment of our volunteers. From virtual training to connecting with both online and offline members, our volunteers have continued to go above and beyond to support Special Olympics athletes.

We are incredibly grateful to have such a dedicated group of volunteers that continue to make a difference here in Alberta. Thank you for everything you do and Happy National Volunteer Week!"
