Best Buddies Jobs Program
If you know someone who has an intellectual or developmental disability (IDD), the Best Buddies Jobs Program could be a great fit. Additionally, if your company is interested in hiring someone with a disability, we would like to talk to you.
Best Buddies Jobs is a program for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities who are interested in competitive, integrated employment opportunities within their communities.
We work with the individual, along with his or her support coordinator and guardian(s), utilizing a person-centered approach to create an action plan for job development. This means we help each participant find a job he or she really wants to have.
Best Buddies Capital Region receives funds through the Virginia Department of Aging and Rehabilitative Services and private pay, and is now a licensed vendor for Medicaid. Some of the services we provide include Situational Assessments, Job Development, Job Placement and Training (Job Coaching), and follow-along services.
