Picture yourself as a university student. You are walking through the halls of the student center and you see students with physical and/or developmental disabilities walk by with their lunches. You think to yourself, “Who are those students? I see them around on a weekly basis, and I would love to get to know them!” Project Buddies is exactly what you need! The mission of Project Buddies is to bring together college students and individuals with special needs to foster friendships that will be everlasting. Project Buddies provides the opportunity to enjoy one another’s company during fun group activities and grow from the experience, in addition to educating the community at large that “differences” between the two populations are not as big as they might seem.
