PBHA's Best Buddies

Purpose Statement

Harvard's Best Buddies chapter is part of the international organization that matches individuals with intellectual disabilities in one-to-one friendships with their non-disabled peers. Students who become Peer Buddies are expected to contact their Buddy weekly and participate in two activities per month. In the past, individuals with intellectual disabilities have not had the opportunity to have friends outside of their own environment, and we are similarly limited at Harvard. Many buddy pairs go on to be lifelong friends - and there are many fun group activities and outings for the entire chapter throughout the year.
