2019 Volunteer Opportunities

Support Special Olympics New Mexico
by Volunteering in 2019

Special Olympics New Mexico serves more than 3,700 athletes statewide. The largest “Area” served includes Albuquerque and its surrounding cities. We have many day-of-competition volunteer opportunities throughout the year and would love for you to be part of our volunteer crew.

Day-of volunteering allows you to pick one or more shifts during a competition and is an opportunity for new and seasoned volunteers looking to make an impact in the lives of Special Olympics athletes. It’s an experience you will cherish! Individuals, groups and teams are all welcome. Email Rebecca at rainsberger@sonm.org with questions and to discuss group sizes for shifts.
