Special Needs Virtual Buddy Program
Our Special Needs Virtual Buddy Program is a free program that aims to close the distance that many of us are experiencing during the pandemic, especially for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and other special needs. We want to increase support for youth with special needs and their families, providing them with online opportunities to interact with others, receive mentorship, and have fun virtually! Your child and their buddy would have a virtual meeting for approximately 1-2 hours/week where they would participate in a variety of activities (arts and crafts, reading, Netflix parties, online games, baking, academic tutoring, or simply just chatting to their new buddy). There will also be various group activities for your child to virtually meet and interact with other volunteers and buddies!
