• Best Buddies open new chapters at Brownsburg East and Brownsburg West middle schools

    August 17, 2011 No comments

    The Best Buddies Indiana state office is opening new chapters at Brownsburg East Middle School and Brownsburg West Middle School for the 2011-2012 school year. Hosting two of the four Best Buddies middle school chapters in Indiana, the Brownsburg middle schools will join the quest to integrate students with intellectual and developmental disabilities into their schools and greater communities.

    A nonprofit organization, Best Buddies Indiana provides opportunities for one-to-one friendships and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Each Best Buddies chapter matches students with intellectual and developmental disabilities in mutually enriching friendships with their non-disabled peers. Friendships fostered by Best Buddies improve members’ self-esteem and confidence, allowing students with intellectual and developmental disabilities to experience mainstream high school life.
