Best Buddies is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
Program Description: The Orange County Best Buddies Social Club is a group of young professionals with and without disabilities who get together once a month to socialize, make new friends, and have fun!
Volunteer Roles & Responsibilities: The volunteer will be meeting and socializing with other volunteers (young professionals) with and without disabilities during our monthly get-togethers in Irvine. We've gone out to dinner together, bowling, watched movies, and more! This isn't a formal matching program. The hope, however, is that a genuine friendship forms between volunteers and they continued to socialize outside of our monthly event.
All volunteers must be 18+ years old.
Time Commitment: 2-3 hours per month
Benefits: Opportunity to meet new people and make friends!
