Best Buddies

URI Best Buddies helps to build one-to-one friendships between college students and those living in the community with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We partner with Perspectives Corporation, which is a local agency that provides services for those with IDD. Each month, group homes from all over South County come to an event on campus where we eat food and do various age-appropriate activities while building social skills as well as friendships. We pair each college student with an individual from Perspectives and encourage them to hang out, talk on the phone, go bowling, to dinner, and anything you would do with a college peer! If you have any doubts, DON'T!!! This will be the highlight of your college career, we promise :)
