For my capstone, I am trying to recruit volunteers to help with Special Olympics, this coming spring. Special Olympics has always been an important part of my life; I started to help volunteer when I was in 5th grade with family friends and I have continued to go each year after that. It’s a special experience that I would love to share with our community, so I am looking for 20 volunteers to go with me! We will be going on April 9, which is a half-day. Since we will be missing actual school, we still have expectations for everyone interested in going.
You must be a Junior/Senior
You must have transportation
You must stay with your buddy until the games are over (around 1 pm), whether that be in the Olympic village, eating lunch (volunteers receive a free lunch), or walking around. If your buddy chooses to leave, we will find you another way to help.
Special Olympics has set a strict number of people we may bring, so please don’t sign up if you are worried that you may need to cancel or go out of town. *You must be committed to going!
Remember, this day is special for them, not you!
If you’re interested in volunteering, please fill out this form and we will get back to you with a parent permission slip. *You have until March 6 to answer the form.* Please be concise with your answers: https://forms.gle/rmqmq1hb8GgdHgMD9
