Special Olympics Samoa would not exist today without the commitment and enthusiasm of the volunteers who give their time to the organisation. We rely on volunteers at all levels of the movement and our volunteer pool is dedicated and diverse. While some offer an afternoon, many enjoy the Special Olympics family so much they volunteer for a lifetime
The Spirit of Giving
No matter what commitment you can offer, you are welcome to join Special Olympics Samoa and experience the joy of making a positive impact on the lives of people with an intellectual disability.
Special Olympics Samoa is about transforming lives, including your own. It’s about a spirit of giving and teamwork. It’s about making your community and village a more welcoming and accepting place for people of all abilities. It’s also about creating lifelong friendships and finding a new way of thinking about others.
Regardless of your age, education or work experience we value your support and time you are willing to provide us. Our team is great at finding your strengths and helping you to use them to make a positive difference with us. If sport is not your interest please explore Our Programs to find a program that suits your skills. If we do not currently offer something you are passionate about, you can contact us as we are always interested in opening new programs and partnerships.
Our volunteers include the local coach who works with athletes many times a week, to the people who help organise and plan a World Games, to the photographer who captures athletes in action at competition events, to the executive who volunteers on behalf of their company a couple times a year.
Special Olympics Samoa have built a strong culture of volunteering and leadership and we offer support and development opportunities for our volunteer members, many of whom see the smiles on the athletes faces as their reward.
