Day Camp for Inclusion in Venezuela
Susana is a Special Olympics Youth Leader from Venezuela who will lead a Youth Innovation Project that brings her community together for an inclusive day camp experience. As participants work through a series of activities, they will learn the fundamentals of teamwork and inclusion. By creating a space for individuals with and without intellectual disabilities to engage in recreational activities, Susana hopes to promote the importance of inclusive recreational spaces.
Over the course of six months, Susana will bring together 20 Youth with and without disabilities for the inclusive camp experience. During their time at camp, participants will learn more about environmental awareness, English, art, and relationship building. By providing a space for youth within her community to learn and grow together, Susana is empowering the Unified Generation to act as leaders for inclusion in their community.
