What is the Best Buddies Program?
Best Buddies is an International Non Profit to bring awareness to those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This ranges from Down Syndrome, Autism to Cerebral Palsy
These programs create opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental.
They positively impact nearly 900,000 individuals with and without disabilities worldwide.
Our Mission: To establish a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Our Goals: Best Buddies created the 2020 Initiative in 2011, with the goal of opening offices in all 50 states, expanding into 100 countries, and impacting 3 million people with and without IDD worldwide by the end of 2020.
The initiative also includes plans to train 4,000 Buddy Ambassadors, develop 1,000 jobs for people with IDD around the world, and increase the number of school-based chapters to 2,500.
As a result of these ambitious expansion efforts, Best Buddies hopes to become a household name by the end of 2020.
