Best Buddies and You!

Best Buddies logoExpand your education by getting first hand experience in leadership and community development. Obtain valuable volunteer experience and learn life lessons.

Best Buddies is a friendship program, matching student volunteers and individuals with intellectual disabilities. Through these one-on-one matches, friendships develop and the participants learn about the importance of community involvement and inclusion.

Matches spend time together doing things that friends would normally do - talking about their day, going for coffee, watching movies, playing sports - whatever they both enjoy! And the entire group gets together for fun activities.

Working with 'Community Living Burlington', CSU is excited to present this opportunity to its students. For more information, download the brochure (2.7Mb PDF) or check out the Best Buddies web site, and be sure to attend the information session in Orientation week.
