About Us

Best Buddies International is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, leadership development, and inclusive living for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).

Best Buddies envisions a world where people with IDD are so successfully integrated into schools, workplaces and communities that its current efforts and services will be unnecessary. Until that vision becomes a reality, the organization will continue to educate middle school, high school and college students, community members, corporations and employers about the emotional, functional, and natural needs and abilities of people with IDD.

We successfully oversee Best Buddies Friendship Programs in Elementary, Middle and High School Programs on Cape Cod, building friendships for students with and without disabilities. We offer PRE-Employment Training programs in several area High Schools, We offer leadership development in school and with all participants of our program, as well as offer our Integrated Jobs Program assisting those post school who seek work in their communities.

If you are interested in being more involved in assisting our PRE-Employment Program with learning about jobs, offering tours or internships; or hiring a participant from our jobs program, please reach out to us.
