  • Special Olympics Unified Champion Schools® Inclusion for All toolkit In response to the call for equality and inclusion that is so important and relevant in today’s climate, Special Olympics Unified Champion Schools® has put together an “Inclusion for All” toolkit to be used as a resource and discussion tool. This collection of resources can be used to address the questions and conversations about inequality, racism, and exclusion that youth leaders may have. While Special Olympics Unified Champion Schools® is just one voice in an ocean of voices, it is our responsibility to foster this change and these conversations. The goal of these resources is to support youth as they are finding their own voices and to think critically and responsibly as part of the Unified Generation.
