Services Provided: When people with disabilities 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 and leadership opportunities providing the necessary tools for people with intellectual ad developmental disabilities to become more independent and more included in the community. Best Buddies Middle and High Schools matches students with intellectual disabilities with other middle and high school students and creates one-to-one friendships between them. In today's middle and high schools, students with intellectual disabilities often enter the same building and walk the same hallways as their peers, but are frequently left out of social activities. By introducing Best Buddies to public and private middle and high schools, we are crossing the invisible line that too often separates those with disabilities from those without. Best Buddies Colleges matches people with intellectual disabilities with other college students and creates one-to-one friendships between them. In the past, individuals with intellectual disabilities have not had the opportunity to have friends outside of their own, often isolated, environment. E-Buddies creates e-mail friendships between people with and without intellectual disabilities. Using the technology of e-mail, e-Buddies brings additional unconventional opportunities to people with intellectual disabilities. Best buddies Promoters empowers youth to become advocates for people with intellectual and bring awareness to the disability rights movementBest buddies Citizens fosters one-to-one friendships between adults with and without IDD in corporate and civic communities.
