Become a Volunteer






Special Olympics Volunteer Oath

I promise to give of the time in my life so that Special Olympics athletes can have the time of their lives. 

I promise to support Special Olympics, not just as an expression of charity, but as a form of respect for my fellow human beings.

I promise to spread the word of volunteerism because, in giving, I receive so much more in return.  

General Information 

Volunteers drive the Special Olympics New Mexico movement.  We are always looking for groups and individuals willing to volunteer their time and effort so that we may bring the joy of sport to New Mexicans with disabilities.

Special Olympics New Mexico offers a wide range of volunteer opportunities so you can pick the activity that best fits your lifestyle.

If you are new to our organization and would like information on how to get involved as a volunteer, contact us at

Special Olympics New Mexico would not exist today, nor be as successful as it is, without the help of the thousands of people who dedicate their time, energy, and especially their enthusiasm to making the world a more accepting place.
