Protective Behaviors Training
Any vulnerable person, anywhere in the world, can be abused in ways
that leave no marks on the body but terrible scars on the soul. It is
through the caring, concern and talents of all its athletes, families
and volunteers that Special Olympics has become one of the most
respected sports organizations in the world. Special Olympics requires
all volunteers to participate in the Protective Behaviors Training
Program. The program’s goal is to provide education intended to prevent
physical, emotional and sexual abuse.
Special Olympics Inc. developed the Protective Behaviors Training as a
tool to assist with protecting Special Olympics athletes from abuse. All Class A volunteers, 16 years of age and older, must complete this training.

to help keep our athletes safe from abuse.
