Best Buddies Program Promotes One-to-One Friendships (SSDMO)
Bowling, grabbing a bite to eat, or going to Movie Monday at Ballpark Village are all activities that students are enjoying while participating in the one-to-one friendship program, Best Buddies.
“My buddy Matt and I like to play video games together and go to the movies,” said Oliver DeStefano, a junior at Parkway Central High School who receives services from SSD. “My favorite memory of the Best Buddies program was going to the Pajama Jam at Mary Institute and St. Louis County Day School with my buddy Matt.”
Students who receive services from SSD in eight partner district high schools and one partner district middle school are participating in the Best Buddies program.
