Learn Unified: Whole School Engagement

Whole School Engagement is one of three components of a Special Olympics Unified Champion School®. It’s when awareness and educational activities promote inclusion and reach the entire school population. Activities can include, Spread the Word, Fans in the Stands, and Polar Plunges.

#UnifiedGeneration Review:

“This video displays how whole-school engagement works. Special Olympics promotes inclusion of students with intellectual disabilities in school. Through activities like the Spread the Word campaign and inclusive pep rallies,  everyone is engaged and no one is left out. My favorite part of the video was seeing everyone participate in a polar plunge. You could see how much fun everyone was having. It was a very touching.” — Tajha Ilerant, 2018 U.S. Youth Ambassador (Florida)
