Consider volunteering with an organization that changes attitudes and builds stronger communities across Prince Edward Island. You will make meaningful and lasting changes in many lives, including your own.

Special Olympics PEI, 3 CoachesSpecial Olympics programs are rich with opportunities for rewarding volunteer experiences, from coaching to serving as an official, assisting with events, leading programs for young children or mentoring Athlete Leadership participants.


Be a Coach

We believe that quality volunteers and coaches are the most important part of our programs. Our coaches give athletes the skills and encouragement they need to succeed, and to live healthier, more confident lives.

Being a coach with Special Olympics is also incredibly rewarding! With a passion for sport and the right level of sport knowledge, coaches have the opportunity to become leaders at all levels within the movement.
