Visit with local companies in Athlete Village!
A list of companies attending will be posted in May.

Inclusive work opportunities are on the forefront of many discussions within the Special Olympics community. We want to help connect job seekers and employers, so we’re working with companies that hire people with intellectual disabilities to get the word out about the positions they offer. Stop by to meet with companies, schedule interviews, pick up applications and get more information at Summer Games!
