Mission Statement

National Inclusion Project operates on three core beliefs: EVERY child can participate, EVERY child can make a friend and EVERY child can succeed. With those beliefs in mind, we've made it our mission to make the inclusion of children with disabilities the EXPECTATION, not the exception. We work with community organizations and recreational programs, providing them with the training, tools, and support they need so that children with disabilities can be included in ALL of their activities and programs.

Description

The National Inclusion Project grew out of the relationship between Clay Aiken and Diane Bubel and Diane's then 13-year-old son, Mike who had been diagnosed with autism. The bond between them grew strong as we shared a vision of a world where children like Mike could be fully immersed in society. We had both witnessed children with disabilities repeatedly turned away from activities opened to typical children.

Since 2003, The National Inclusion Project has worked with hundreds of programs, trained numerous staff members and leaders, and provided inclusive opportunities for over 20,000 children. This far-reaching impact would not have been possible without the dedicated support of countless volunteers and supporters. With their help in raising awareness and funds through projects like Wrapping for Inclusion, the National Inclusion Project has dedicated the vast majority of every dollar into making an impact with our programs.
