Tomorrow we will be at the Southeastern Louisiana University Career Fair from 9am-2:30pm. If you are a current or former SLU student, please come stop by our table and sign up to volunteer or intern with us!
Even if you cannot make the Career Fair tomorrow (or you are a student at a different university) please click here for more information on volunteering and interning with Special Olympics Louisiana.
We are always on the look out for great people, so be sure to get in touch with us to learn more about our volunteer and internship opportunities!
Did you know that Special Olympics Louisiana offers free health examinations for our athletes? Healthy Athletes is a large part of our organization. Our athletes are screened through Special Smiles, Healthy Hearing, Health Promotion, Fit Feet, Fun Fitness, and Opening Eyes. Our athletes are screened, free of charge, at our state competitions. Athletes also receive a “goody” bag for Special Smiles and Health promotion filled with lots of great tools to keep up the good work! Come out and find the booth at our State Games!
Did you know? Special Olympics Athlete Leadership Program empowers athletes to explore opportunities for greater participation in our movement beyond sports training and competition: as coaches, officials, spokespeople, and Board and committee members. 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.
