Our six formal programs - Best Buddies Middle Schools, High Schools, Colleges, Citizens, e -Buddies® and Jobs - will positively impact more than 350,000 individuals this year. Best Buddies also is systematically implementing our 2010 initiative that will witness the organization's continued significant growth, both domestically and overseas. Best Buddies volunteers annually contribute services to the community that equate to more than $70 million USD.
