Unified Champion Schools® is a unique Special Olympics program that is changing the lives of students throughout the U.S. Since 2008 the U.S. Department of Education through Special Olympics, Inc. has awarded funds to Special Olympics programs to implement UCS in schools, promoting acceptance and inclusion among students with and without intellectual disabilities. Set in a fun, interactive, Unified environment, participants engage in advocacy, friendship, fitness, and sports opportunities – together. The Texas UCS program is in its tenth year and is active on more than 100 campuses.

Unified Champion Schools Activities

Unified Champion Schools emphasizes three core components: Inclusive Youth Leadership & Activation, Unified Sports, and Whole School Involvement. Students participate in a wide variety of activities, from conducting Spread the Word to End the Word awareness campaigns to hosting Unified competitions in a variety of sports. UCS is a student-driven program; each campus forms a Unified Youth Leadership Team whose members consider activity options and recruit new and existing participants to join in planning and hosting different events. Authentic social inclusion is always the goal, so students of varying abilities participate in every opportunity as peers and equals, forming true friendships and utilizing the unique talents and abilities of each person.
