(PDF) April 10, 2018 – On Saturday, April 14, Special Olympics athletes that are current and former Caroline County Public School students will be participating in Maryland Special Olympics Athlete Leadership Programs (ALPs).
ALPs give individuals with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to stand up and let their voices be heard, as well as teach them the leadership skills to help shape the direction and movement of Special Olympics. These programs put athletes in an environment where people listen to them and value them as individuals.
Special Olympics Maryland encourages athletes to choose the type of leadership opportunities that they are most interested in pursuing. Training classes are offered to help the athlete learn the skills that are needed to be successful in the role they will fill.
Special Olympics Maryland also helps train volunteers, coaches, committee members, and others to work with athletes in a way that values athlete participation.
Caroline County students EJ Alton, Eli Bradford, Mason Thomas, and Todd Pulleyn will join alumni Brad Cowell and Kelsey Rowe in this exciting new opportunity with Special Olympics.
