Best Buddies International, Inc.
September 6, 2013

I have seen Best Buddies change peoples' lives in big way. I attended Leadership Conference in 2013 and heard directly from individuals with intellectual disabilities ("Buddies") that Best Buddies changed their lives.

One young man, a Buddy, told me that because of the Best Buddies jobs program he has a job and he has been performing for years at that job and he loves it. He also said with Pride the he is Good at it. He is grateful for that job and the purpose it has given him and that is why he was studying to be an ambassador so he can tell other people his story. By telling his story he hoped other people could get jobs also. When he understood that I was a volunteer, he thanked me. That changed my life.
