The mission of Special Olympics Southern California is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
Our vision is to provide sports and training programs for any individual with intellectual disabilities who chooses to participate, thereby improving their lives and the lives of everyone they touch.
There are day of event opportunities inside of a sports environment (at a competition) or outside of a sports environment (at a fundraising or outreach event) throughout the months of January-June in Southern California. Please visit http://www.sosc.org/volunteer for further volunteering information and opportunities.
