Saturday, March 6th – Sunday, March 7th

Too often, because of negative attitudes and low expectations, people with intellectual disabilities (ID) don’t get an opportunity to show what they can do. Special Olympics has an approach—Unified Leadership—that overcomes this barrier. Building from sport, Unified Leadership teaches leaders of all abilities to value and learn from each other and create environments where people with ID succeed in meaningful roles. Special Olympics’ leadership work with athletes starts through sport—teaching life skills such as discipline and teamwork. This is built on through athlete leadership development, and opportunities in health, schools, and youth programming. We are thrilled to welcome you to our Leadership weekend. Whether you have attended many trainings or this is your first we are excited that you are considering attending. We are also excited to be offering these courses to not just Special Olympics Maryland athletes but to individuals outside of Special Olympics Maryland as well.
