Best Buddies International (BBI) is a 501©(3) non-profit organization that was founded in 1989 by Anthony K. Shriver. Its mission is to enhance the lives of people with intellectual disabilities by providing opportunities for one-to-one friendships and integrated employment. BBI currently has more than 1,400 middle school, high school, and college chapters worldwide. Their programs engage participants in each of the 50 United States and in 34 foreign countries.
 
Best Buddies matches high school students with intellectual disabilities and other high school students to foster one-to-one friendships between them. By introducing Best Buddies to our high school, we are crossing the invisible line that too often separates those with disabilities from those without. This program enhances the social experiences that are a common component for high school students and that can be easily missed by students with intellectual disabilities.
