Best Buddies

Type: Social
Membership Types: EIU Students/Faculty/Other


The mission of Best Buddies is to establish a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities!  In our chapter, we primarily focus on creating long-lasting friendships between people with and without IDD!  We have a chapter party once a month and the college members additionally come to a meeting once a month!  This is a great way to meet new people and gain experience with adults with disabilities!
