For 47 years, Special Olympics has been a force for ending intolerance, injustice, and inactivity.
Generation Unified leaders apply with project proposals. During the Summit, they will connect, engage, and learn from mentors who will help them turn idea into impact. Each project will receive funding upon completion of the Summit program.

TO CHANGE INTOLERANCE, INJUSTICE, AND INACTIVITY

Generation Unified will fight this reality.
