Southern California Program

Special Olympics Southern California

Long Beach, CA
$250,000
December 2013

Special Olympics Southern California is partnering with the Games Organizing Committee to stage the Special Olympics World Games, which will be held in Los Angeles in the summer of 2015.  A two-year grant will support a coordinated effort between these two organizations to recruit, train and manage the 30,000 volunteers that will be needed for the 12-day World Summer Games.  At the close of the World Games, Special Olympics Southern California will retain many of the volunteers recruited for the event and build on the new relationships established with local organizations to expand its programs, which now serve 15,000 of the region’s 560,000 individuals with intellectual disabilities.
