Youth Unified Council

Special Olympics UAE Youth Unified Council is made up of young people from across the Emirates who work together to promote inclusion and change perceptions. Unified Council members help make their communities more respectful and inclusive by raising awareness about Special Olympics and helping everyone understand all that individuals with intellectual disabilities can do. Members are young people with and without disabilities that work together on many projects and initiatives , they share ideas and inspirations about inclusion and work on applying these ideas in their communities

The council members provide advice and counsel on strategies designed to reach other youth, support and promote Special Olympics UAE activities in their home communities, and inspire others to get involved.

Special Olympics UAE Youth Unified Council is accredited by the Youth Federation Authority in the UAE.
