Awesome volunteer opportunity!
Volunteer (Former Employee), Clarion, PADecember 10, 2012
The experience is very humbling. You will work directly with the competitors and you will help and support them throughout the day. You will be assigned to a specific activity.

Excellent
Fundraising/Events Coordination Intern (Former Employee), Santa Barbara, CASeptember 12, 2012
Pros: fulfilling work
This is such a great organization to work with. A typical day as an intern would include working towards an event or fundraiser with the two women who run the program. Often times athletes would stop by to say hello and it was a great atmosphere.

Volunteer/Coach (Current Employee), Plant City, FLJuly 28, 2012
Pros: road trips, different gyms, tournaments
Running practices, spending time with the team after practices and before games. I learned that it's better to give then receive and the best reward is knowing you did something good from the community. the hardest part of my job would be the season ending and waiting for a new season to begin. The beginning and during the season.

The Special Olympics was a bundle of fun. I learned about the value of life while working here. The most amazing thing about this was to see the smiles on all of the children's faces.
