Update: We are waiting to hear from JCCC regarding their guidance and protocols due to COVID-19. Once we receive this information, we will know how many students we can host at the event.
1. Masks must be worn by all attendees.
2. Capacity reduced to 70% (650 attendees including participants, staff, and volunteers)
We will once again offer the opportunity for schools and school districts to host Job Olympics within their buildings this year if they choose not to attend at JCCC or our capacity limits do not allow a school to attend. In this instance, we will offer all scoring guides and ribbons to schools just as we did last year for the "Virtual" Job Olympics.
Job Olympics is a competition developed to promote transition and employability skills for a broad spectrum of high school students in special education. Job Olympics brings together over 500 students from 40 different schools throughout the area. Competitions representing actual job and employment situations are judged by business people from the community and professionals in education. At the awards ceremony, the top schools and competitors will be recognized with ribbons, medals and trophies.

Advocacy In Motion, Inc. (AIM), is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization serving individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in our community. We believe in real work for real pay, but finding meaningful employment for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor. The Job Olympics competition was developed to promote transition and employability skills for a broad spectrum of high school students in special education. Job Olympics brings together over 500 students from 33 different schools throughout the area. Competitions representing actual job and employment situations are judged by business people from the community and professionals in education. At the awards ceremony, the top schools and competitors will be recognized with ribbons, medals and trophies.
We ask that you consider being an event sponsor of one of our 28 employment skill events. Students with special needs have spent months practicing for these competitions in skill categories that align with their strengths and interests. We would love the opportunity to allow these candidates to showcase their skills in front of potential community employers like you!
