We went to send out a Thank You to all of Special Olympics Louisiana’s sponsors and all that they do for us!
Special Olympics Louisiana since 2007 offers a program for those children with intellectual disabilities ages 2 through 7. The program is called Young Athletes, click here for more information.
Special Olympics Athlete Leadership Programs (ALPs) allow athletes to explore opportunities for participation in roles previously considered “non-traditional.” ALP’s institutes training so that our athletes can be participants in all administrative functions of the organization. Volunteer and Coaches Training sessions are setup throughout the year to train area volunteers to work effectively with athletes to build management and engage in leadership skills in all aspects of Special Olympics. Through ALPs, athletes serve on Boards of Directors or local organizing committees. Athletes excel as spokespersons, team captains, coaches and officials.
