During the four-day program, F.L.A.M.E. participants will reside in the Olympic Training Center dormitory, eat at the Athlete Dining Hall, and have daily opportunities to interact with Olympians, Paralympians, and hopefuls. The program’s itinerary includes motivational presentations by Olympians and Paralympians, leadership seminars conducted by USOC and NGB staff leaders, networking and financial literacy workshops, Olympic/Paralympic sport demonstrations, field trips to local attractions, and information on the USOC Internship Program.
Previous speakers at the F.L.A.M.E. program have included Olympians and Paralympians such as the legendary 10,000 meter gold medalist Billy Mills (1960); silver and gold speedskating medalist Derek Parra (1998, ’02); and Paralympic track & field gold and bronze medalist April Holmes (2004, ‘08) to name a few.
