Abstract: The Sports Empowerment Program (SEP) is a program that invites local high school students placed in the exceptional children classrooms to go out and participate in various sports with other members of the Robeson County community at the University of North Carolina Pembroke (UNCP) campus. I was introduced to the SEP as a freshman through the Honors College and loved the experience. Junior year, I decided to I wanted to team up with the Office of Civic and Community Engagement and host the SEP for my senior project. I working alongside Abigail Foster from the CCE to prepare for the event on March 18th. After months of planning I was not able to follow through with hosting the event but I took away a lot from this experience.
