Our club’s purpose is to provide our members with valuable ideas and information. We tour education facilities, listen to speakers, volunteer, and get involved on campus and in the community. Our club helps to make our members more aware of their resources in the community and on campus. We have monthly meetings and encourage you to get involved and share your thoughts and ideas.

S.O. College

Our mission is to unite college students and people with developmental disabilities to enhance their lives through sport, friendship, advocacy and other activities. We run a Young Athletes program which is for children ages 2-8 with developmental disabilities. The goal of Young Athletes is to work on gross motor skills to help prepare the children for participation in Special Olympics when they are old enough. We also volunteer with KidZone Respite at the Kearney Children’s Museum.
