Continuing Unified Sports During COVID-19

Continuing Unified Sports During COVID-19

Rizvan and Joel are Special Olympics Youth Leaders from Albania who are leading a Youth Innovation Project aimed at joining the digitalized Special Olympics movement during COVID-19 by keeping athletes engaged from home. Through this project, Rizvan and Joel plan to make a video gallery of guides for football and basketball. Rizvan and Joel plan to film multiple videos for each sport in which they will showcase various skills and elements that will engage athletes.

 

Over the course of six months, Rizvan and Joel hope to engage over 5,000 individuals on social media, where they will share their finished videos. Rizvan and Joel will engage multiple Youth Leaders by featuring their videos playing sports from home. Rizvan and Joel are empowering the Unified Generation to not give up on inclusion even in the midst of a global pandemic.
