Cumberland County Special Olympics (Volunteer Opportunity)

Special Olympics Large

The Cumberland County Special Olympics will be held on Friday, April 12, 2019. We have been offered the opportunity to assist with this wonderful event.

What is needed?

Volunteers are needed to accompany groups of participants around a circuit of events that will be set up for them.

Who can help?

We need 15 teens to step forward to sign up by March 10th deadline.

Where will it be held?

The Cumberland County Special Olympics are hosted by Methodist University in the football complex. There is a map at the bottom of this page to help you navigate through campus.

When do I need to be there?

Volunteers need to be onsite and ready to work at 8:00am. The event lasts until around noon. If all goes as planned, you will be finished for the day by 1:00pm. If you sign up to help, you CANNOT arrive late or leave early. Doing so could possibly leave the group of participants you are assigned to without anyone to guide them. If you cannot commit to the duration of the event, please do not sign up.

This is a school day, what about my absence?

It has been negotiated with the high school principals for any teen that attends a Cumberland County School to receive an excused absence for the day. A letter will be delivered to each school attendance clerk the Monday after the event to provide the needed documentation.

Any other details?

Breakfast will be provided at the time of arrival and lunch will be catered for those that help.

Dress in clothes that will allow you run and jump and stay warm. You will be provided with a staff T-shirt when you arrive.

If you have any other questions, please contact Michael.
