About Special Olympics BC
Special Olympics BC empowers individuals with intellectual disabilities to enrich their lives through the power and joy of sport, and to create inclusive communities throughout British Columbia by opening hearts and minds to the talents of individuals with intellectual disabilities. Through transformative programming in sports, health, education, and community building, Special Olympics is tackling the inactivity, stigma, isolation, and injustice that people with intellectual disabilities face. Our work goes far beyond sports events, driving social change that enables full participation for people with intellectual disabilities. Join our team to make a difference!
Special Olympics BC hires on merit and is strongly committed to fostering an inclusive workplace and equality and diversity throughout our community. We welcome applications from Indigenous persons, visible minority group members, persons with disabilities, people of all sexual orientations and genders, and others with the skills and knowledge to productively engage with diverse communities.
