Special Olympics Athlete Leadership Program Empowers Leadership and Encourages Participation.

Athlete leaders are an integral part of the Special Olympics Movement and help Special Olympics leaders stay in touch with athletes’ interests. This way we can ensure that our programs remain vital and attractive to the people we serve.

The Athlete Leadership Council is made up of athletes from all across Louisiana. Council meetings provide a forum for athletes to report to other athletes what is happening in their areas, voice their opinions about important issues and gain leadership training and experience.
