Best Buddies of America

Mission Statement
Best Buddies International is a worldwide organization offering the opportunity for students to participate in middle school, high school, or college chapters.  Best Buddies ambitiously envisions a world where people with intellectual disabilities are so successfully integrated into our schools, our workplaces, and our general communities that our current efforts and services unnecessary.  Until that vision becomes a reality, our mission is to educate middle school, high school, and college students, community citizens and corporations, and employers about the emotional, functional, and natural needs and abilities of people with intellectual disabilities.  By creating friendships with college buddies, individuals with intellectual disabilities are given the chance to experience a new environment, create lasting friendships, and learn to live life from a new and different standpoint.
