Mission Statement

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).

Description

Locally, we accomplish our mission by pairing high school and college students without IDD in one-to-one friendships with their peers with disabilities. We also host ambassador trainings for participants with IDD to coach them in speech writing and speech delivery. Additionally, we empower people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to have a presence online through our eBuddies program.
