Advocates for Children

The 2018-2020 Director of Junior Clubs’ special program is partnering and bringing awareness with Special Olympics.  This campaign hopes to support children and young adults that may have physical special needs and/or intellectual disabilities but still want to be involved and included in sports activities through their Communities and State competitions.  The Juniors of South Carolina intend to bring awareness to these youth of the Palmetto State.

Advocates for Children Week is Sunday, October 21-Saturday October 27, 2018.
