Best Buddies

These videos share conversation with Best Buddies, special friendships happening across New York State.

Best Buddies has strong programs in New York that enrich the lives of youth and adults with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).  To date, Best Buddies is represented on 88 middle school, high school and college campuses across and has matched 62 adults with IDD in one-to-one friendships in the Citizens programs in Albany and New York City. More than 1,000 friendships are happening across the state!  Our friendship programs are supported by local special events as well as private and corporate contributions.  With the amazing support from the Golisano Foundation in 2016, we were able to open our fourth office in Rochester, expanding our impact to Western New York.
