A Party for the Unified Generation in Peru
Paolo and Esteban are Special Olympics Youth Leaders from Peru who will lead a Youth Innovation Project to create a safe space for individuals with and without intellectual disabilities to engage in inclusive activities. These activities will allow participants to express their true selves and develop lasting friendships. By providing a space for individuals with and without intellectual disabilities to gather, Paolo and Esteban are hoping to establish a culture of inclusion within their community.
Over the course of six months, Paolo and Esteban will work to bring youth with and without disabilities together in a fun and welcoming environment by holding an inclusive gathering on three separate weekends. Paolo and Esteban plan to use art activities, music, and dancing to help reveal everyone's true spirit in an inclusive atmosphere. By providing a supportive space for youth with and without disabilities to express themselves, Paolo and Esteban are empowering the Unified Generation to set an example for a truly inclusive community.
