- Are you interested in learning more about Best Buddies Wisconsin?
- Do you want to get involved with a mission that ensures EVERYONE feels included and has a friend?
- Are you considering becoming a Buddy to a person with an intellectual and/or developmental disability?

If you answered YES to any or all of these questions, we encourage you to reach out and learn more about Best Buddies Citizens Program.

The Citizens program matches an adult with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) in a one to one friendship with a peer without a disability. This buddy pair develops a friendship like any other and promotes a more inclusive world for adults with and without disabilities.

We are particularly in need of Citizens volunteers in Milwaukee, Waukesha and Dane Counties. We also are hosting quarterly virtual informational sessions for possible volunteers.

To register for an upcoming informational session or learn more about the Citizens Program, please send an e-mail to Christine Schulz, Program Manager - Community Engagement at christineschulz@bestbuddies.org
