The International Special Olympics project, So Get Into It, has come to Romania through Special Olympics Romania (SOR). This is one of many activities that is part of the Motivation Romania and SOR joint program. Ninety young people signed up to attend a comprehensive screening for employment opportunities as well as new or additional involvement in Special Olympics. Job fairs will be held in the spring. A member of the regional team provides job coaching, a personal prep session, and accompanies the applicant to a job interview. Excitement and hope were evident throughout the event!
Employment for individuals with disabilities is an issue throughout the world. So many people and/or organizations have the desire to do more. but often do not put aside their own agenda to work together to tackle the large issues. We applaud SOR and Motivation Romania for partnering on this issue.
