A Week of Unity in Serbia

Pavle and Stefan are Special Olympics Youth Leaders from Serbia who participated in the 2019 Global Youth Leadership Summit. Pavle and Stefan will lead a Youth Innovation Project that brings together people across Serbia to participate in a weeklong Unified event featuring Unified Sports and Inclusive art. Pavle and Stefan hope that this event will provide families that have children with disabilities a space to feel understood and included.


Over the course of the year, Pavle and Stefan will engage 15 new Youth Leaders to plan and support the weeklong Inclusive event. Pavle and Stefan plan to recruit nearly 100 athletes and partners to participate in Unified Sports events and hope that witnessing the power of play through Unified Sports inspires hundreds more. By training Youth Leaders on the fundamentals of event planning, Pavle and Stefan are empowering the Unified Generation to create Unified events in their communities.
