Students with disabilities continue to be marginalized members of society. The purpose of this qualitative study was to better understand the experiences of athletes and peer partners as they participate in the Special Olympics Youth Activation Committee in the context of their local schools and communities. Through the analysis and study of students’ experiences with Special Olympic Unified Champion School programming, we can better understand how to implement inclusive educational programming and provide meaningful experiences for all students in public school settings.
