Northeastern Sasi Community Service Day

The NCHSAA and Special Olympics North Carolina have worked together over the past year to promote the theme of inclusion through the Project UNIFY initiative.  Special Olympics Project UNIFY is built upon the premise that in order to have the greatest impact, the change process needs to start with young people. Project UNIFY brings youth with and without intellectual disabilities together through education, sports and related initiatives that promote acceptance, respect and human dignity for all students.

This year the NCHSAA Student Athlete Summer Institutes (SASI) further promoted this collaboration through various efforts that included presentations by a Special Olympics NC representative and community service day with local Special Olympics athletes.
