For the Movement, By the Movement
Over 1,600 people, from athletes to Program leaders and from Africa to North America, responded to a Mission Effectiveness Survey that helped us to identify our true, global priorities. In June of 2010, over 600 leaders from throughout the Movement met in Marrakesh, Morocco for a Global Congress in which strategic priorities were tested, discussed, and agreed upon. We formed Pillar Working Groups comprised of subject matter experts, including: coaches, Program leaders, Special Olympics International Staff, family members, athletes, and other key stakeholders. These Groups served as authors of the Plan in order to ensure that we put on paper was relevant, high impact, and achievable.
Our Plan is the result of literally hundreds of thousands of hours of work. We hope that you will take the time to educate yourself on what we are trying to achieve and how you can assist us in reaching our important goals. Thank you for your dedication and interest!
