Help Required



Make new friends by joining or starting a Best Buddies club at your school or in your community! These clubs bring together students with and without special needs to begin one-on-one friendships and help to make schools more inclusive! Host a virtual chapter or citizens activity, share your special talents with our participants in an interactive virtual event (Trivia, virtual arts and crafts, share your favorite recipe in an interactive cooking segment, lead a virtual yoga class, host a virtual field trip- the possibilities are endless).

What's Needed To Complete

Depending on if there is already a club at your school or not, you will need different things. If there is already a club, you will not need any supplies, just the time to spend with your new buddy. If you want to start a new club at your school because there isn't one already, you will need to talk to 2 teachers to advise the club, find a group of other students to help you run the club, and you may occasionally need supplies to run the club like food, supplies for arts & crafts, or decorations.

Whose Help Is Required

Teachers and other students!

Special Requirements

Best Buddies clubs are currently in middle schools, high schools, and colleges, so volunteers would need to be attending one of those to participate in a chapter.

How It Makes A Difference

By joining Best Buddies, you will help make your school a better place by including kids with special needs and creating a safer environment for everyone. Plus, you will make new friends and have lots of fun, too!
