Special Events












The Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi will welcome athletes of determination (with intellectual disabilities), from more than 170 country around the world, to compete in different Olympics sports on March 6- 22, 2019. 

We need your support as a volunteer to give back to the community and help in creating more inclusive, unified world. There are hundreds of possible opportunities for volunteers in areas such as coordinating events, assisting sport officials, supporting technology system and much more.

A highly important part of the Special Olympics World Games is the DAL (Delegation Assistant Liaison) program in which volunteers will take a unique position to personally accompany the athletes and delegations during their time in Abu Dhabi. We are looking for volunteers with strong communication skills, fluent in English and the primary or secondary language of our many Delegations, and the ability to deliver under pressure.
