About

Crossing the finish line. Scoring a point. Celebrating with the team. Special Olympics Southern California (SOSC) is dedicated to moments such as these, because it is through these moments - and all the moments that lead up to them - that our athletes find strength, success, confidence, and joy. SOSC volunteers help make moments like these. They are on the field guiding the athletes through drills. They are behind the scenes supporting events and people. Street Team Ambassadors are our boots on the ground and help us spread the word about SOSC to motivate others to come to events and support our athletes.
