Best Buddies Ireland is seeking corporate and community partners in Dublin to bring friendship, jobs, and leadership development opportunities to individuals with intellectual and development disabilities.
Join Best Buddies International and Best Buddies Ireland on November 21st for the Best Buddies Ireland Open House. This event will include a presentation on the organization. Snacks and drinks will be provided.
Best Buddies International is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, leadership development, and inclusive living for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
Who We Serve
The IDD community that Best Buddies serves includes, but is not limited to, people with Down syndrome, autism, Fragile X, Williams syndrome, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury and other undiagnosed disabilities.
Best Buddies is the world's largest organization dedicated to ending the social, physical and economic isolation of the 200 million people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Our programs empower the special abilities of people with IDD by helping them form meaningful friendships with their peers, secure successful jobs, live independently, improve public speaking, self-advocacy and communication skills, and feel valued by society.
Best Buddies Ireland
Over the past 10 years, Best Buddies Ireland has been operating the School Friendship program in Galway. Hundreds of participants have been impacted by this movement. It is now our interest to bring Best Buddies to Dublin. The Best Buddies Ireland Open House will introduce the organization to the attendees but also provide as a networking experience for socially conscious companies, organizations, and individuals.
