Best Buddies Colleges, a program for college students, pairs people with intellectual disabilities in one-on-one friendships with college students (aka College Buddies). College Buddies & their Buddies must meet 2 times per month – one activity is individual; the other is a large group event. The pair also makes weekly telephone or email contact.
