Quince Orchard Best Buddies
Best Buddies works to enhance the lives of people with disabilities by providing one to one friendships.
What is Best Buddies?
Best Buddies is a club at Quince Orchard High School and many other high schools around the country.
What kind of activities do we do in Best Buddies?
In Best Buddies, we do a lot of group activities. Once a month, we have a luncheon for all of the members to attend and eat lunch with their buddy. If you have a buddy, you are expected to contact them twice a month. We have many parties and do many activities outside of school. Sometimes we go bowling and sometimes we just hangout after school.
Can i still be in the club and not have a buddy?
There are two types of members, peer buddies and associate members. A peer buddy is someone who has a buddy. An associate member is someone who doesn't have a buddy, but still attends all of the events and meetings. Some associate members are needed to help videotape our events and help with other types of projects.
