Best Buddies Rhode Island Trains 3 New Ambassadors
On Saturday, June 11, the Best Buddies Advisory Board Programs Committee trained three new Buddy Ambassadors in “Finding their Voice.” The new Ambassadors, Emily McLaughlin, Elvin Rios, and Becky Bernard worked throughout Saturday morning and afternoon with their speech coaches, Hanna Fuchs, Cyndi Fuchs, and Lisa Scotti-Johnson to develop personal mission statements, goals in their new roles as Ambassadors, as well as speeches to advocate for the inclusion of people with IDD.
All three Ambassadors spoke about being an inspiration to others and included people who were inspiring and helpful to them. They now are armed with the tools needed to advocate for themselves and others with IDD. We look forward to hearing more from our new Ambassadors at upcoming Best Buddies RI events! Thank you to all who participated in an amazing mission filled day!
