WHO WE ARE and WHAT WE DO:
Best Buddies is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of people with disabilities by providing opportunities for one-to-one friendships.
Matches students with disabilities with high school students from the general education environment to create one-to-one friendships. By introducing Best Buddies to public and private high schools, we are crossing the invisible line that too often separates those with disabilities from those without.
