    Special Olympics Pennsylvania’s Philadelphia program mission is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

    Volunteers are the backbone of Special Olympics PA – Philadelphia. We could not exist without the dedication of hundreds of volunteers. The time, energy, and enthusiasm of volunteers fuel our movement and make our athletes’ dreams a reality. There is a place for everyone in our organization. All of our volunteers have one thing in common – a sense of personal pride knowing they are changing the lives of individuals with intellectual disabilities. As a volunteer, you can expect to get much more than you give as our athletes will make a positive impact on your life.
