Athlete Leadership prepares athletes for roles as Athlete Speakers, Program Mentors, and Governance Representatives

Special Olympics PEI athletes are thriving in roles on and off the playing fields. Our athletes engage in public speaking roles, act as MCs at events, represent the interests of Islanders with intellectual disabilities on Parliament Hill and sit on our Board of Directors.

Special Olympics Athlete Leadership allows athletes to explore opportunities for greater participation in our movement beyond sports training and competition: as coaches, officials, team captains, spokespeople and Board and committee members.

These roles give athletes a voice in shaping the Special Olympics movement, and a chance to spread the word about the transformations Special Olympics can bring to individuals and families. Athlete Leadership also provides a way for athletes to showcase talents and interests that may have gone unnoticed, such as public speaking.
