Come join our club at Dakota High School 10-12 building! Project Unify is a mentorship program for students with disabilities, sponsored by Special Olympics. Project Unify is an education-based project that uses the sports and education programs of Special Olympics to activate young people to promote school communities where all young people are agents of change – fostering respect, dignity and advocacy for people with intellectual disabilities.  We believe that through sports, young people can make a difference in friendships, schools and communities.

Our club is for students in the CLP program to join with general education peer mentors as partners in sports and activities. This year, in order to include more of our students, we will be doing a combination of meetings during "A Lunch" as well as after school meetings.  Our after school club meetings will be held in a CLP classroom, Room 254.
