Volunteer Opportunities

The South East Consortium values the relationship it has with volunteers and fully understands and appreciates the contribution it represents to both our participants and the volunteer(s). Volunteers are an integral part of our success. The expertise, experience and energy our volunteers bring to our many diverse programs has proven to foster more efficient and effective programs for participants of all ages.

Volunteers need to be at least 16 years of age. Depending on the extent of a volunteer's involvement, an intake orientation and criminal background check may be required. All volunteers will work under the supervision of a salaried staff member.

If you have some time to give and an interest in supporting an invaluable program, we always need help staffing athletic programs, wellness/movement programs, creative arts programs, social events, and several different special events.

We welcome any serious high school student who is at least 16 years old and needs to fulfill a community service obligation for school. Also, if you are interested in becoming a certified Special Olympics coach to work with our sports programs, we will provide the sports specific training.

Student Internship Opportunities

The South East Consortium periodically will entertain the request of a high school or college student needing to fulfill a school-related internship. This is a very selective process that must be mutually beneficial and appropriate to the needs of our participants. Please contact the Executive Director or Program Director for more details.
