Bethlehem Special Olympics would not exist without the dedication, commitment, energy, time, and effort of all our volunteers. That willingness to give allows us to be able to offer sports training and competition to hundreds of individuals in our area. Volunteers come in many forms from youth to senior citizens and provide a myriad of services. Do you have just a little time that you could donate and become a Volunteer? Some of our opportunities are listed below:
Coaches Coaches, Assistant Coaches, and coach’s aids fill a vital role for Special Olympics. A team can not compete, practice, or even exist without people to manage it. Our coaches include students, business people, community members, and family members of athletes. Special Olympics Coaches often start as general volunteers at an event. Although no specific sport skill is required to be eligible to coach, many coaches have expertise in the sport they select. Clinics are held for those who wish to become certified by Special Olympics.
General Volunteers / Event Volunteers We have a lot of need for general volunteers. These are people that do not have the time to commit to sports that meet regularly or prefer to help in other ways. Some examples are: committee members, computer help, event coordinators, timers, score keepers, office help, event help, and fund raisers.
Management Team The Management Team is made up of volunteers who oversee the direction of the organization, coordinate events, solicit donations and volunteers, as well as any other requirements necessary for the operations of Bethlehem Special Olympics. There are positions available so please contact us to discuss your participation!
Fund Raising Committee/Booster Club We are always looking for new ways to raise money to support our activities. The Fund raising committee does just that. They generate ideas and then coordinate and run fund raising events such as our annual car show.
