Project Unify

Building Stronger School Communities
Project Unify

In 2008, Special Olympics North America was awarded funding from the US Department of Education with a goal to activate communities where all young people are agents of change, who foster advocacy for people with intellectual disabilities (ID). To accomplish this goal, the organization formed “Project UNIFY,” a program that seeks to utilize existing state Special Olympics programs and initiatives in combination with schools to promote socially inclusive communities. Special Olympics Kentucky is excited to announce that any school committing to the Project UNIFY movement has the opportunity to request funding to assist with their program.

The goal for Project UNIFY programs in Kentucky schools is as follows…
The Special Olympics Kentucky Project UNIFY mission is where every person, regardless of their ability or disability, is accepted, welcomed, and valued! We strive to create an atmosphere where youth improve attitudes, enhance relationships, and boost acceptance among all students. through education initiatives, youth activation, inclusive sports and social inclusion opportunities for students with and without intellectual disabilities.
