BYU students are being recruited for a unique service project requiring language skills, as LDS Public Affairs is helping with an international Special Olympics next summer.
The Special Olympics Summer World Games 2015 will be held in Los Angeles. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is helping to recruit volunteers for everything from hosting teams to filling the stands with fans. Stakes from San Luis Obispo to San Diego in southern California are being asked to fill the many positions needed in the event. LDS Public Affairs has turned to BYU to help fill a need for delegation liaisons, who are live-in translators assigned each country’s delegations.
