This show provides a glimpse of some of the best young people in the state and some of the most significant outcomes of our youth development programs.

Polar Plunge for Special Olympics
February 17, 2018
It’s that time of year again! We are currently preparing for the 2018 Polar Plunge to benefit Special Olympics Louisiana. Each year, this is one of the biggest fundraisers throughout the state for Special Olympics. With your help we are hopeful that 2016 will be our best year yet. Please consider participating, donating your time, or even a monetary donation to the jumper of your choice.
Each year, your efforts help to ensure and promote inclusion, fair play, understanding, and acceptance for thousands of individuals with intellectual disabilities. There is still much work to be done, as still thousands more are left without these opportunities due to lack of funding.
