Join Best Buddies to help create opportunities for one-on-one friendships between people with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), to improve the quality of life and level of inclusion for a population that is often isolated and excluded. Through their participation, people with IDD form meaningful connections with their peers, gain self-confidence and self-esteem, and share interests, experiences and activities that many other individuals enjoy. Our goal is make Wakefield socially inclusive of all students, break through social barriers, and create lasting friendships that continue after high school. Go to Bestbuddiesonline.org (C-246)
