Support Best Buddies

Volunteer as a Buddy

Partner with Best Buddies

When people with IDDs are unable to attain or maintain a job, it is most often due to an absence of social skills rather than an inadequacy to perform the work required. Best Buddies introduces socialization opportunities and job coaching, providing the necessary tools for people with IDDs to become more independent and, consequently, more included in the community.

Best Buddies High Schools
Since 1993, Best Buddies High Schools has paired students with IDDs in one-to-one friendships with high school students. By introducing Best Buddies into public and private high schools, participants are crossing the invisible line that too often separates those with disabilities from those without. Today, Best Buddies boasts more than 900 high school chapters worldwide.
