Project Unify Club

Written By Mrs. Helmer

Fillmore High School’s Project Unify Club is dedicated to creating inclusive friendships between students with and without intellectual disabilities as they work together to create communities of caring and respect. Special Olympics Project UNIFY is funded by the U.S. Department of Education created to eradicate the social and environmental walls to inclusion.

FHS Project Unify Club is committed to a movement advocating for youth as change agents by participating in activities like “Spread the Word to End the Word”, Unified Sports, Special Olympics youth as volunteers, “A Night to Remember” prom as a catalyst for fostering a positive school climate.

Join us in creating a school and community climate fostering respect, dignity, and advocacy for people with intellectual disabilities. You can make a difference by joining the Project Unify Club, volunteering to help with club sponsored events, making the pledge to stop using the r-word at, or following social media for Special Olympics and Project UNIFY.

Fillmore HS has been recognized by the Special Olympics of Southern California in leading the way towards creating a school climate of respect and tolerance for all students and more specifically those with intellectual disabilities. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram at FHS Project Unify.
