Schools are partners with Special Olympics Louisiana. Many of our athletes with intellectual disabilities, and students without intellectual disabilities, first become involved with Special Olympics Louisiana sports and competition programs through schools. The goals of the school programs are to create sporting events, youth leadership opportunities, and activities that encourage youth participation, inclusion, and leadership in schools state wide. School programs aren't just about winning. It teaches understanding to the students' peers and the community by pairing Special Olympics athletes with a partner (a peer without an intellectual disability) during events. Special Olympics Louisiana is proud to partner with numerous schools and districts all over the state.
If you want to get your school involved, contact us by email or 1-800-345-6644.
