R.I. Special Olympics Charity Profile

Special Olympics athletes are the heart of our organization. Through our programs, athletes enjoy a lifetime of active participation in sports, as well as an opportunity to make new friends, learn new skills, build confidence, and discover their independence. All over the world, Special Olympics athletes embody the Olympic ideal: sports competition not for personal gain or glory but for the sheer joy of taking part.
The family and friends of Special Olympics athletes are part of a global network that reaches far beyond the playing field. In Special Olympics, they find a support system of others with similar concerns, questions, and life experiences; help finding medical and community resources; and a place of belonging, celebration, and lifelong friendship.
Special Olympics Rhode Island offers over 1,400 sports training and competition opportunities in 25 Olympic-type sports to over 2,700 individuals with intellectual disabilities.

R.I. Special Olympics Volunteer Information

Special Olympics Rhode Island’s year-round program of sports training and competition could not happen without the time, energy, and dedication of the hundreds of volunteers who serve as our coaches and committee members. We also owe many thanks to the volunteers who act as course marshals, timers, starters, lane judges, food servers, security, and medical personnel.
If you’re new to Special Olympics, welcome! Whether you’re coaching an athlete, handing out medals, selling raffle tickets or timing a race, we think you’ll find that volunteering with Special Olympics is an experience that uplifts the spirit and touches the heart.
Everyone can contribute to Special Olympics Rhode Island, regardless of background or experience. No matter how much or how little time you have to give, when you volunteer, you will be making a difference in the lives of our athletes.

Children under the age of 10 are not eligible to volunteer, but are welcome to attend events as spectators.
