Recruiting Organization: Best Buddies New York
Best Buddies Citizens is a community-based adult friendship program, that pairs people with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) in one-to-one friendships.

Everyone wishing to be matched must fill out an online application, survey, background check as well as meet with staff for a virtual interview.
Matches are made based on age, interests, and proximity.
Volunteers are paired for a full calendar year and expected to communicate with their match once a week and meet up once a month.
The Best Buddies office hosts optional social events for the entire group, all around the Rochester area. Staff check in regularly to see how friendships are going, offering guidance and training when needed.
