BEST BUDDIES volunteers help to develop leaders with intellectual and development disabilities (IDD) and is so forward thinking that I’ve been a supporter for years. Founded by Anthony Shriver over two decades ago, Best Buddies is now global with volunteers around the world providing one-on-one support to IDD participants in middle school, high school and colleges helping them develop leadership and speaking skills, teaching them how to secure jobs and how to live on their own.
Since we spend so much time online these days, I love Best Buddies email pen pal program. It’s a fun and unique way to volunteer and help your new friend develop social, literacy and computer skills too. The best part is you never have to leave the comfort of your own home, so I hope you will consider participating. Thank you!
