Youth is the Future

Hi, my name is Bettina Lehmann. I am on the Youth Advisory team with Special Olympics Europe Eurasia. I am happy and excited to be in this position. Young people are the future of today. I think if we want to change our community to a community of involvement and inclusion we have to work with the young people. When we get more schools involved in Project UNIFY and start also other events at school the students can see how much fun each Special Olympics event is. Through showing the youth what you can do and how you can get involved, they hopefully get motivated to get a part of the movement of change. My aim in the position of Youth Advisor is first to get more young people involved in Special Olympics. Second, I want to show adults that you have to work together with young people to make a really big change in the community.
