Best Buddies is a nonprofit 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 (IDD). Founded in 1989 by Anthony Kennedy Shriver, Best Buddies is a vibrant organization that has grown from a single college chapter to more than 1,500 college, high school and middle school chapters across the globe. Best Buddies programs engage participants in each of the 50 United States.
Locally, Best Buddies has four programs: Best Buddies Colleges, High Schools, Middle Schools and Ambassadors. The counties we currently serve include Duval, St Johns, Nassau, Clay, and Leon. Being a part of Best Buddies is a life-changing experience for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. These friendships help to improve the self-esteem, confidence and feelings of self-worth of participants.
