What is Athletic Connection?

This program is specifically for students who are a part of BYU athletics, and volunteer opportunities are organized per team. BYU athletes volunteer to teach physical skills to children who have Down Syndrome. Program leaders help the athletes in their interaction with the children. Athletic Connection generally meets at the UPC (University Parkway Center) on the corner of University Avenue and University Parkway in Provo.

How do I get involved?

If you are part of BYU athletics and would like your team to schedule a Saturday to participate, please email to let the leaders know you are interested. Please note that this program is specifically for students who are a part of BYU athletics.

Volunteer Commitment:

Leaders commit to 1 hour on Saturdays, twice a month, from 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM.


Please complete this mandatory 25-minute Minor Protection Training before you begin working with this program.
