Medical Volunteers provide onsite coverage of Special Olympics competitions and events by providing simple first aid. Medical Volunteers can also assist with Healthy Athletes screenings and MedFest, providing pre-participation medical examinations for our athletes. Medical Volunteers can be physicians, athletic trainers, nurses, physical therapists, emergency medical technicians, medical or nursing students, and/or paramedics.
Time commitment: Partial or full-day for both event coverage and pre-participation medical examinations.
In addition to one and two-day Event Volunteers, volunteers are needed to serve on Games Management Teams and assist with competition and fundraising events throughout the state. Duties include assisting staff with pre-games planning and set-up, coordinating logistics, publicizing the event, recruiting volunteers, etc. Contact Victoria Mehren, firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved. Sports knowledge a plus but not required - training provided.
Time commitment: Generally requires 5-10 hours per month for a 2-3 month period, depending on the event.
