Best Buddies is the world's largest nonprofit organization devoted solely to providing opportunities for friendships, jobs, and leadership for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
The HP Raiders chapter will foster one-to-one friendships between students with and without IDD. This program helps create an inclusive school climate for students early on in their educational development.
We will begin sign-ups for Buddies, Peer Buddies, and Officers next week! All incoming 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th graders are eligible to apply. We will hold Officer and Peer Buddy interviews for the current school year on a date to be announced soon.
Please help us spread the word to your students! This is an amazing organization to be a part of that empowers youth to become advocates for their peers!
