PSEG was a Founding Partner of the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games and Presenting Sponsor of the Youth Leadership Initiative that focused on a Leadership Institute in 2013 and a Youth Summit at the 2014 USA Games. Their support and funding helped execute a Leadership Institute for New Jersey High School students to serve as leaders to create a culture of acceptance in their schools and communities, while bringing together students with and without intellectual disabilities through sport.

The Youth Summit witnessed this same objective but by bringing student leaders from all 50 states together to exchange ideas to return to their home state and implement programs of acceptance and inclusion into their schools and communities. After the 2014 USA Games, the PSEG Foundation became a Partner to Special Olympics New Jersey to continue this same objective to develop youth leaders, within the middle schools and high schools, to help convey the messaging of acceptable and inclusion in and out of sport, but using sport as the driving vehicle.
