Founded by Clay Aiken and Diane Bubel in 2003, the National Inclusion Project works to bridge the gap that exists between young people with disabilities and the world around them. NIP partners with communities and inclusive programs to create awareness about the possibilities that inclusion can bring and to help facilitate those possibilities. NIP works nationwide with recreational programs, such as YMCAs, Boys & Girls Clubs, and Girl Scouts to open doors for kids with and without disabilities to be included together and experience all that life has to offer.
