Best Buddies International FL

Best Buddies International dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Founded in 1989 by Anthony Kennedy Shriver, Best Buddies is a vibrant, international organization that has grown from one original chapter to more than 1,400 college, high school and middle school campuses across the country and internationally. Our six formal programs - Best Buddies Citizens, Colleges, e-Buddies, High Schools, Jobs and Middle Schools - will positively impact more than 400,000 individuals this year. Our goal is to continue expanding nationwide and at the local community level, while more broadly engaging the global community through our programs.
