Boys & Girls Clubs of America is committed to creating safe, inclusive spaces where every kid can reach their full potential and feel a sense of belonging. We’re proud to partner with Special Olympics North America to implement inclusive programming that brings together students with and without intellectual disabilities to build acceptance, leadership skills and healthy lifestyles.

In collaboration with Special Olympics Unified Champion Schools programming, we’ll promote social inclusion through intentionally planned and implemented activities at Boys & Girls Clubs, where members with disabilities are routinely included in and feel part of all activities, opportunities and functions – furthering a more inclusive and accepting Club environment.

With our dual commitment to youth sports, leadership and healthy lifestyles, the melding of our two leading organizations will create new opportunities for systemic change for present and future generations of young people.
