Special Olympics Volunteer Opportunities

Champions Lions clubs impact lives and improve communities. With a primary focus on projects that serve Special Olympics athletes, Champions Lions clubs empower and build accepting communities for persons with intellectual disabilities and their families. This community-based setting also offers you wonderful Special Olympics volunteer opportunities and the chance to serve as a Lion.

Joining Forces to Support Persons with Intellectual Disabilities

Lions clubs around the world support the Special Olympics-Lions Clubs International Opening Eyes Program. This $10 million LCIF initiative screens the vision of Special Olympics athletes – and has provided prescription eyewear to more than 200,000 athletes. Lions play a key role in the success of this program through hands-on event support that includes:

  • Helping register athletes.
  • Providing color vision and visual acuity tests.
  • Distributing glasses and sports goggles to athletes.

To date, more than 8,000 Lions worldwide have volunteered their time and talents to the Special Olympics, demonstrating the motto, "We Serve."

I'M A LION BECAUSE ...

"The personal development opportunities are endless. I get to use and develop my talents in public relations, but I also learn how to interact in a board meeting.”
