Athlete Leadership Programs
Athlete Leadership exists to empower the most important people in our movement…. The athletes. It creates opportunities to develop and demonstrate leadership skills. We also provide athletes the tools to utilize their voices to effect change inside and outside Special Olympics to help create inclusive communities all over the world.
Athlete Leadership Council (ALC)
Since 2013, a dedicated and talented group of Athlete leaders has been meeting three times yearly to share ideas, concerns, make recommendations and provide feedback on events and competitions.
