Unified Champion Schools

Build Back Better, Build Back Unified

Special Olympics Arizona (SOAZ) Unified Champion Schools is a strategy to activate youth, engage educators and promote school communities of acceptance and inclusion where all young people are agents of change.  

Who can become a Unified Champion School? 

Any school can become a Unified Champion School! Public, private, charter, pre-k, elementary, middle school, high school, college or university, schools with or without special education programs—whatever the setting, if you’re interested in joining the Unified movement, we’ll work with you to make it happen. 

What does my school have to do to become a Unified Champion School? 

Unified Champion Schools implement the three components of Unified Schools into their setting and programming: Inclusive Student Leadership, Unified Sports and Whole School Engagement. All three of these crucial elements shift the culture of a school towards inclusion. Once they’re active, a school is considered a Unified Champion School. Special Olympics Arizona’s state office will support your efforts and make the movement easy and accessible, no matter who or where you are. Are you ready to join the Inclusion Revolution!
