Essential Training for Volunteers
Any vulnerable person, anywhere in the world, can be abused in ways that leave no marks on the body but terrible scars on the soul.
It is through the caring, concern and talents of all its athletes, families and volunteers that Special Olympics has become one of the most respected sports organizations in the world. Special Olympics requires all volunteers in North America to participate in the Protective Behaviors Training Program. The program's goal is to provide education intended to prevent physical, emotional and sexual abuse.
