Volunteer Opportunity – Become a Best Buddy!

Best Buddies – Vrais Copains Canada is a national charitable organization dedicated to enhancing our communities through one-to-one friendships between individuals with intellectual disabilities and students. Best Buddies is grounded in the belief that friendship is important to the development of all individuals and that for all individuals with intellectual disabilities friendship is a medium through which they can become a part of their communities.

About the Program: Our program gives people with intellectual disabilities the chance to have experiences which most people take for granted - going for coffee, out to a movie, or simply enjoying the company of a good friend. To this end, Best Buddies establishes chapters at high schools, universities and colleges across the country. At each chapter students are matched with individuals with intellectual disabilities who share similar interests. The "Buddy Pairs" call each other weekly and get together approximately twice a month. Four times a year all the Buddy Pairs at a chapter hold a group activity. Each chapter is managed by a student volunteer, who is assisted by a person with an intellectual disability, a Buddy Advocate, where possible.

Get involved! Best Buddies provides all participants with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make a new friend. We have chapters in every province in Canada. To speak with someone further about how you can get involved, contact them toll-free at 1-888-779-0061 or e-mail them at info@bestbuddies.ca.

There are several ways that you can help Best Buddies Canada enhance our communities through one-to-one friendships between people with intellectual disabilities and students.
