Special Olympics Global Unified Youth Exchange offers Life-Changing Experiences

From the moment they landed in Raleigh, 20 Chinese students and educators experienced the true meaning of “Southern hospitality”. They’d traveled to North Carolina for the 2016 Special Olympics Global Unified Youth Exchange, a week-long program that united students from two diverse cultures around a shared commitment to inclusive collaboration, authentic engagement and furthering awareness of Special Olympics in their schools and communities. “Special Olympics North Carolina was thrilled to welcome our new friends from China to the Tar Heel state,” said Keith L. Fishburne, Special Olympics NC President/CEO. “The entire week was focused on bringing them together with North Carolina students who exemplify the power of youth leadership within our movement so the two groups could learn from each other.”
