Best Buddies Pennsylvania
October 3, 2012

I have been involved in the school friendship programs with Best Buddies Pittsburgh for 8 years now. Because of Best Buddies, I found that working and socializing with individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities is one of the most fun and rewarding activities I could do. And because of this, I decided to attend Slippery Rock University for Special Education but recently changed majors to work with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in a community setting. My advice to anyone who is unsure about not only participating in Best Buddies but working with people with disabilities is to try it! Like I said above, it is one of the best things you can do in your life! Best Buddies has allowed me to choose a career that I know I will love someday soon!
