Leaders of today Special Olympics conducts a Leadership Conference with the belief that young people are not just the leaders of the future, they can be leaders today in their schools, their communities and around the world. The Leadership Conference provides opportunities to channel the energies of exemplary young people up to age 17 on a local, national, regional and global scale.
Passing on the message The Leadership Conference brings together young people with and without intellectual disabilities to discuss issues of inclusion and acceptance in guided discussions, and make action plans that they can take to their schools and communities to teach other students and community members about acceptance and inclusion.

The 2012 Leadership Conference was held at the Ramkota in Casper on Friday, September 21st and 22nd. It went very well and everyone had a great time. We conducted 12 different sessions which included athletes, coaches, family, staff, and board members. We were very fortunate to have Kathryn Clark be a part of our Leadership Conference. Kathryn is an expert in ALP’s and gave not only the athletes, but everyone who attended, a very good understanding about what ALP’s is and what ALP’s consists of.
A few of the topics that were covered in the Leadership Conference include: Competition and Training Standards, Unified Sports, Program Leadership, and Project UNIFY. We hope to see everyone who attended this year and even more people at next years’ conference!
