Best Buddies: Making a Difference
Best Buddies is an international non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of people with intellectual disabilities by providing opportunities for mutually enriching one-to-one friendships and integrated employment. Best Buddies is the only organization within the U.S. and around the world focused exclusively on improving the lives of people with intellectual disabilities through one-to-one friendships with people without disabilities.
Founded in 1989 by Anthony K Shriver. By 2010, Best Buddies will
- Operate in all 50 states
- Establish programs in 50 countries
- Have 500,000 participants worldwide
Best Buddies 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 will be unnecessary.
