During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Best Buddies Leadership Development Program consists of trainings and workshops for people with and without Intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Virginia, DC, & Maryland are co-hosting 2 virtual leadership workshops on June 3rd & 4th, and we are in need of volunteers to be our Speech Coaches! Speech Coaches are volunteers who work with our participants one on one (sometimes 1 on 2 or 3) and support them throughout the workshops. Typically, speech coaches will help with revisions, editing, and brain storming activities.
The workshops will be held via zoom and below is a brief description for each training:
The Golden Circle - Wednesday, June 3rd, at 4:00 PM
Ambassadors will learn how to develop an impactful mission statement using Simon Sinek's Golden Circle model. Participants will receive feedback from their Speech Coach and leave with a crafted mission statement.
Advocating on Social Media - Thursday, June 4th, at 4:00 PM
Ambassadors will learn the do's and don'ts of social media, and which platform best suits their goals. Participants will craft a post advocating for the mission of Best Buddies with the help of their Speech Coach
