Best Buddies and Citizens

Best Buddies is the world’s largest organization dedicated to ending the social, physical and economic isolation of the 200 million people with IDD. For individuals within this community, Best Buddies helps them form meaningful friendships with their peers, secure successful jobs, live independently, improve public speaking, self-advocacy and communications skills, and feel valued by society. Please Join Nicole Burch, Albany Area Director of Best Buddies NY, as she and her staff discuss the opportunities of the program for people with IDD and people who want to make a difference in another person's life. This program is designed for people with IDD, caregivers/parents, and volunteers who wish to participate in this wonderful program.
