Seeking a Friend for Zeke, a young man from Needham who lives with his family and dog. He currently attends a post-graduate program through Needham High School. Zeke has Developmental Autism and some anxiety regarding social situations, and would benefit from a patient, supportive, reassuring, and positive male Friend who understands Autism. Zeke is an active person who enjoys outings and new adventures, but also loves going to the movies, taking walks, and spending quality time with those he cares about.

JBBBS is looking for a volunteer who could spend time 1:1 with Zeke once or twice a month for a year. Contact is currently virtual but will transition back to in-person meetings when safe and allowed. Our amazing Clinical Match Specialists will also provide match support to help your friendship succeed!

JEWISH AND NON-JEWISH VOLUNTEERS WELCOME!
