Special Olympics Project UNIFY started in 2008 as a U.S. national project, funded by the U.S Department of Education, with the goal to activate youth around the country in an effort to develop school communities where all young people are agents of change - fostering respect, dignity, and advocacy for people with intellectual disabilities by utilizing the programs and initiatives of Special Olympics.
