Ways to get involved:

Athlete Leadership University (ALU)

ALU is a college-style leadership opportunity that offers athletes a variety of topics to study. These topics are leadership positions within Special Olympics that help athletes to gain confidence, independence and grow as leaders both on and off the field. Athletes are encouraged to have a one-to-one mentor and can choose from three topics, or majors, to study: Communications (Athlete Spokesperson), Health and Fitness, and now Coaching 101!

Athlete Leadership Council (ALC)

The Athlete Leadership Council is a forum for athletes to report what is happening in their regions, voice their opinions about important issues and gain leadership training and experience.

Events & Community Outreach

Athlete leaders are the cornerstone of the Special Olympics movement. Using the experience and skills they have gained through leadership programming, athletes spread inclusion to their communities through curated speaking engagements, law enforcement fundraisers and much more.
