The athlete leadership program welcomes all athletes of all abilities. It encourages athletes to develop skills that will empower them to act as advocates for all athletes and leaders for Special Olympics. This program is a social night for our athletes. We meet once a fortnight for an hour and a half, in Spa GAA in Killarney.
Our athletes and mentors participate in arts and crafts and several outings throughout the year.
The Athlete Leadership program is supported and guided by Special Olympics Munster. Athletes have the option to participate in the awards scheme to challenge and develop different skills, such as speech writing, public speaking, picture taking, and computer skills. The program is divided into Bronze, Silver, and Gold and athletes have a volunteer mentor to assist and guide them through each book.
If you would like to participate or get involved in the mentoring side, we would love to have you. Please contact our club secretary Geraldine at 0872365664 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
