Project 26: Best Buddies January 2013

While in Arizona I had the chance to talk with Best Buddies Arizona Staffers and learn more about Best Buddies volunteer opportunities.  I signed up as a volunteer for e-Buddies.  E-Buddies promotes social inclusion online for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. As an e-Buddies, I will be matched with someone with a  developmental disabilities, such as autism and Down syndrome.  We have the chance to come together online to form friendships and a community that celebrates their diversity of character and abilities.  It allows individuals with a developmental disability to make new friends and practice communication skills.  This is an all around fun program. I am looking forward to this great opportunity and being more involved with the Best Buddies organization.
