The mission of Best Buddies is "to enhance the lives of people with intellectual disabilities by providing opportunities for one-to-one friendships." It is our hope as members of Best Buddies to recognize the innate dignity in every human being by promoting awareness and integration through our events.
Saint Michael's College hosts the only Best Buddies program in the state of Vermont. It is a student-run chapter, through which college students are partnered with physically and/or mentally challenged adults from the community. Volunteers meet regularly as a group and participate in a variety of activities and events throughout the year. Special events include dances, art shows, trick-or-treating, and a prom.
