Our work aims to empower young people, educators, coaches, and families as leaders for inclusion, starting in their local schools and communities around the world.

Our Work

Special Olympics Unified Schools promote social inclusion by building friendships and understanding among young people with and without intellectual disabilities. Using sports as a motivator and springboard, Unified Schools offer a range of activities and training that equip young people with the interpersonal tools, skills, and attitudes to foster confidence and acceptance in sporting events, classrooms, and communities.

It's important for young people to know that they can change things. It's important for us to be leaders for inclusion, because if we work together, we can achieve it.
