Best Buddies

Best Buddies' main goal and mission is to create friendships! Best Buddies is a worldwide non-profit 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 development disabilities.

We seek to bring the Best Buddies' mission to the Gwynedd Mercy University community as well as to help create meaningful friendships between the community with intellectual and developmental disabilities and GMercyU students.

As a member of Best Buddies, you will be paired up with a buddy and a friendship that will last a lifetime.  You and your new buddy will participate in various events such as talent shows, arts and crafts and holiday parties.
