Best Buddies (GHS) $500

This program seeks to maximize social opportunities for special education students and mainstream students by matching them in one-to-one friendships. Special education students are often socially isolated from mainstream students and mainstream students frequently are not exposed to individuals with intellectual disabilities. The benefits from positive peer relationships between these two groups will result in higher self-esteem, greater self-confidence, heightened awareness of differences among people and the ability to make a difference in someone’s life.
