Celebrating Athletes and new Unified Schools

Edna and Aldina are Special Olympics Youth Leaders from Bosnia and Herzegovina who participated in the 2019 Global Youth Leadership Summit. Edna and Aldina will lead a Youth Innovation Project to start Unified Sports programs at two local high schools and to make a video that promotes Special Olympics by celebrating the success of the Unified athletes. In doing so, Edna and Aldina will broaden the network of Youth Leaders in their area and make their school a model for other high schools in their community.


Over the course of the next year, Edna and Aldina will establish two Unified Sports Clubs, two Unified Schools, and one Unified Champion School. After the conclusion of the year-long project, Edna and Aldina will make another video, this time documenting the success of the new Unified Sports Clubs and Unified Schools. With Edna and Aldina’s leadership, the Unified Generation will continue to grow and the community in Bosnia and Herzegovina will unite through the power of inclusion.
