Our children will be our future leaders!

Unite for Inclusion provides innovative training programs that will empower our youth to lead a more inclusive world.



The Reality

Supremacy and exclusion are growing at an alarming rate in many of our communities. 

Time for Change

Exclusion is not a problem restricted to adults. It's time to also get the children involved in the solution.

Leadership Challenge

Together we can ALL unite to empower children with the skills and heart to become leaders for inclusion.



Together We Can Break the Cycle of Exclusion

Since 2002, Pathways for Exceptional Children has trained over 49,000 children to be leaders for inclusion throughout New Jersey.  We are now expanding our award winning "children teaching children" training programs to make them available nationally!


What is Unite for Inclusion?

Melinda Jennis, author of the book Include ME!, talks about why we are in dire need of new strategies and mindsets toward inclusion. Segregating into groups based upon labels and advocating with an "us" versus "them" mindset will not bring about inclusion.

One of the most critical areas of focus for increasing inclusion is to train our next generation. Our youth must be  intricately involved in helping us to rewrite the playbook and create new and more effective strategies at the grassroots level to end exclusion.
