The mission of Special Olympics 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.
Special Olympics Montana is a nonprofit organization designed to provide year-round, statewide programs of physical fitness, sports training and athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities and closely related developmental disabilities.
You simply can't come away from a volunteer experience with Special Olympics without a smile on your face. The athletes are enthusiastic and happy to be with you and when it's over, you realize you "got" just as much (or even more) out of the experience as you "gave." And you are able to give others a positive life experience. It feels great!
Special Olympics Montana is a very rewarding organization to be a part of. You will be inspired in every single thing that you do and every interaction you have. A very awesome part is that volunteering opportunities are available for all needs - one day, two days, one week, a season, a year. You choose and just get involved. But be careful, because after 1 hour you'll be hooked for life! :)
SOMT is by far the best place to spend my volunteer time. That's why I have stuck with it for the past 15 years. The athletes and other volunteers know how to work hard but they also know how to have FUN and thats just one of the reasons why I LOVE SOMT!!!
You get paid in hugs! The Special Olympics athletes are truly the most genuine people you will ever work with. They are your friend the moment you meet them. Volunteering with Special Olympics has changed my life. It gives me a sense of purpose and a place to belong. Special Olympics Montana Rocks!
