Baking Bread and Forging Friendships in El Salvador

Andres and Kalebh are Special Olympics Youth Leaders from El Salvador. Together, Andrea and Kalebh will lead a Youth Innovation Project to create a culture of inclusion by holding inclusive baking workshops. Through their baking workshops, Andres and Kalebh believe they can help form stronger bonds between youth with and without intellectual disabilities and raise awareness of the skills and knowledge of youth with intellectual disabilities.


Over the course of twelve months, Andres and Kalebh will host three baking workshops, culminating in an achievement fair where participants will sell their baked goods. Proceeds from the bake sale will support future inclusive baking workshops. By providing a hands-on inclusive learning opportunity, Andres and Kalebh hope to foster a community of respect and inclusion for youth with intellectual disabilities in El Salvador.
