University/College Students

Each University/College Best Buddies chapter requires committed students to be matched in one-to-one friendships with adults with intellectual disabilities from the community. Students can also take on a leadership role with their chapter in addition to being matched with an adult with an intellectual disability.

High School Students and Teacher

Adults with an Intellectual Disability

Adults with intellectual disabilities who are receiving services from one of our partners can volunteer to be matched in a one-to-one friendship with a university or college student. Please contact Best Buddies at info@nullbestbuddies.ca or 1-888-779-0061 to find out if you are eligible.

Agency Partnerships

Each University/College Best Buddies chapter requires a host site. A host site is a group home, supported employment program or community association, working directly with adults with intellectual disabilities, that forms a partnership with Best Buddies to recruit and match Buddies with students.

If you would like more information on creating a partnership with us, contact Best Buddies at info@nullbestbuddies.ca or 1-888-779-0061.
