Project UNIFY

Special Olympics Project UNIFY® is an education and sports based strategy powered by an engaged youth community that increases athletic and leadership opportunities for students with and without intellectual disabilities, while creating communities of acceptance for all.


Play Unified, Live Unified

Inclusive sports provide youth with and without intellectual disabilities the opportunity to train and play together as teammates. Students develop exceptional athletic skills while forming friendships, fostering respect for each other, and becoming leaders on and off the court. Learn More


Leaders of Today

Special Olympics Project UNIFY® provides opportunities for young people of all abilities to be leaders in their schools and communities by promoting equality and acceptance. These leadership activities help students with and without intellectual disabilities find their voices by teaching them to become change agents striving for respect and inclusion. Get resources to help you become a leader


Engaging All Students

Students of all abilities have the power to positively impact their school communities by promoting social inclusion. With tools such as Spread the Word to End the Word®, Get Into It, and SO College, youth are creating an educational environment where respect and acceptance are the norm and all students feel included and engaged.


“Project UNIFY isn’t just a mission, it’s a determination to wake up every morning and teach respect through example; it’s a resolve to go to sleep every night leaving the world a better place.”Evan Heller, Youth Leader
