Best Buddies Club

Best Buddies was founded in 1989 by Anthony Kennedy Shriver. It is a vibrant international movement positively impacting the lives of people with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities. 


The mission of Best Buddies is to establish a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-on-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.


How does that happen? By being respectful, creating friendships, and using appropriate people-first language in weekly engaging activities. We walk our talk together, whether it's at a school play or a Valentine's Dance. We make life happen!



Our MHS Best Buddies Club members signed a pledge accepting all five of Rachel's challenges.
