Celebrate Disability Awareness Month with Best Buddies

March is #BestBuddiesMonth – and you can get involved!

What started as a one-day event has become a month-long celebration promoting one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, leadership development and inclusive living for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). This month, join us as we celebrate the achievements of our participants and supporters, and continue to expand our mission globally.
