Best Buddies

Advisors: Ms. Foy, Ms. Rauter, Ms. Gielow

Best Buddies is an international nonprofit organization that seeks to enhance the lives of people with intellectual disabilities through one-to-one friendships with peers who do not have disabilities.  Best Buddies is a “friendship club” that matches students in a one-to-one friendship (Buddy Pair) between students with and without intellectual disabilities.  Students make a one school year commitment to contact their buddy once a week and do something with them twice a month.  The students at Hamilton High School, along with the guidance of the chapters faculty advisors will be in charge of coordinating group events once a month that all members of the club can attend.
