Welcome to Best Buddies, University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire Chapter!
 

This year we have more than 56 friendships built between College Students and Community Members with intellectual and developmental disabilities.


Our goal is to put ourselves out of business as we build mutual and meaningful year-long friendships. We believe we shouldn't have to have an organization in order for individuals with disabilities to be accepted and provided the opportunities you and I are blessed with.


Are you interested in taking a stand and joining us in this global movement toward Inclusion, Unity, and Acceptance?

Then apply today at bestbuddiesonline.org and email us for more information! We would love to hear from you and have you as a part of our chapter!

 

***All Majors are welcome! ***

In Friendship,

Portal Information

Description

Best Buddies is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization 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.

Best Buddies Colleges pairs people with intellectual disabilities in one-to-one friendships with college students. Without friends and family, we are alone. In the past, individuals with intellectual disabilities have not had the opportunity to have friends outside of their own environment. By becoming a College Buddy, you can create a meaningful friendship with an adult in the community with an intellectual or developmental disability.
