Best Buddies Month is a time for Best Buddies participants to reflect on the importance of friendship, jobs, and the development of future leaders. Most importantly, it is a time to show the world the significance of these essentials in every individual’s life.
In celebration of #BestBuddiesMonth we will be showcasing outstanding volunteers, employees, and supporters every Monday as part of our Monday Mission Moment series. This post comes from two of our long-standing Bay Area jobs participants, Sarah Hoffman and John Hammond.
