Fun and Rewarding Experiences 

Volunteers enable Special Olympics Orange County (SOOC) to offer training and competition programs to ~300 individuals with intellectual disabilities.  Individual volunteers (and groups) can serve as coaches, officials, time keepers, media liaisons, administrative assistants, tournament helpers and other special event providers.  Chapel Hill-Carrboro City School students can receive student learning hours through the LetServe App.

Get Involved

To Volunteer with SOOC, the following Volunteer Application should be printed, completed, and sent/dropped off to the Chapel Hill Parks & Recreation office, 200 Plant Road, Chapel Hill, NC  27514.  Office hours are M-F, 8:30am- 5:00pm (closed Town Holidays).
