New Communities

Special Olympics BC aims to bring sports programs and competitive opportunities to individuals with intellectual disabilities in communities across the province.

In places where there currently are no SOBC programs, there may be opportunities for volunteers to make an exceptional and substantial contribution to their area by starting a SOBC Local.

For more information on these and other volunteer opportunities, please contact Sarah Wall, Special Olympics BC Manager of Community Development, at (604) 737-3125 or toll free at 1-888-854-2276.

Are you a new volunteer who has already registered with your local program?
