Current Volunteer Opportunities

Start something exceptional...

"My favorite part of volunteering at LEEP is the relationships I have formed with the participants. I love the special bonds I have with each of them. It makes my day when I come to practice and an athlete runs up to me to tell me about their day or something exciting that happened to them that week.

My goal is to continue to work with Special Olympics organizations like LEEP and continue to make a difference in the participants' lives. I would also like to help raise awareness in the community about organizations like LEEP so that they can get more recognition and funding to keep doing all of the amazing things they do for participants!"
