Volunteer Code of Conduct

Special Olympics is committed to the highest ideals of sport and expects all volunteers to honor Sport and Special Olympics. All Special Olympics volunteers agree to observe the following code:

I will provide for the general welfare, health and safety of all Special Olympics athletes and volunteers.

I will dress and act in an appropriate manner at all times.

I will follow the established rules and guidelines of Special Olympics and/or any agency involved with Special Olympics.

I will not promote religious or political beliefs or preferences while volunteering.

I will report any emergencies to the appropriate authorities after first taking immediate action to ensure the health and safety of the participants.

The relationship between Special Olympics and volunteers is an “at will” arrangement and it may be terminated at any time without cause by either the volunteer or Special Olympics Minnesota.
