Volunteer at an Event Become a Coach Become a Unified Partner Volunteer as an Intern

Thank you for your interest in volunteering! Volunteers are the foundation of Special Olympics Missouri. We depend on thousands of volunteers to help coach, conduct events and serve on organizational and fundraising committees. The efforts of a volunteer provide opportunities to children and adults with intellectual disabilities, who, if given the chance, can participate and excel in sports and life.

What to expect as a SOMO volunteer

Before volunteering at one of our events, take the time to watch this video where athletes, coaches, Unified Partners and volunteers will tell you what you need to know before you show up on event day!


"I was hooked after volunteering at my first event. It is so impressive to see how talented these athletes are and it's very encouraging to witness their attitude. All athletes try hard, they are so genuinely happy, and they encourage every person in the room. Honestly, we can learn a lot from this organization and these athletes."
