“Best Buddies is a nonprofit organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.”
We came across Best Buddies recently through word of mouth and immediately had to check out their website! After looking into their mission and what they are all about, we were sold… and got in touch with Lauren Nelson, the Area Director of Central Florida. Lauren was nice enough to sit down and talk with us about her job at Best Buddies, how people can get involved, and shared some great stories with us!
Check out our interview with Lauren and be sure to connect with them and get involved! As Lauren mentions in the video, any time you have to volunteer, get out and do it! Whether it is an hour here and there, or a full time volunteer, they welcome you!
Special thanks to Lauren Nelson!
