Welcome to Special Olympics NWT!

Special Olympics NWT is looking for one or more individuals who will join us on sport program and development side of our organization. Are you ready to:

  • do whatever it takes to build or maintain strong, vibrant, and sustainable community organizations;
  • bring new athletes and volunteers to the organization; - train and support volunteers so that they may make the most of their involvement;
  • initiate approved new programs in communities;
  • work with community leaders to find solutions to challenges that limit Special Olympics growth and development;

There are two parts of the work and they can be done by the same person or by two different people. One part is working based in Yellowknife with our sport programs and development. The other part is exploring opportunities to establish Special Olympics opportunities for NWT athletes with intellectual disabilities outside of Yellowknife which will involve travel. Both parts of the work will require you to work evenings and weekends. We are open to exploring both full and part-time options for the right individual(s). A criminal record check will be required. Please include time commitment/availability and compensation expectations in your cover letter. If this is your dream work, and you have a valid driver’s license and vehicle, apply with a cover letter and resume immediately to
