Do you see a need for a project to help persons with intellectual disabilities? Your idea may be a great fit for a Special Olympics Project UNIFY® grant.
To be eligible, you must be between the ages of 12 to 20, or a current undergraduate student in college. A Special Olympics North America program is required to be your main partner organization. Projects must demonstrate the core essence of service-learning.
The goal of Special Olympics Project UNIFY® is to activate youth around the country to develop school communities where all young people are agents of change—fostering respect, dignity and advocacy for people with intellectual disabilities through sports and education programs.
Budgets for projects can range from US$100 to US$5,000. The deadline is rolling through May 31, 2012. Apply today!
