We love our Volunteers
Meet Rachel, Student Volunteer in San Diego, CA
How long have you been a volunteer with Best Buddies?
I have volunteered with Best Buddies for 4 years.
How has Best Buddies impacted your life?
Best Buddies has changed my life for the better in more ways than one. It has helped me open my eyes to people who are different from me and helped me see them as people first. The friends I have made with IDD have bettered my life more than I could have ever bettered theirs and I am forever grateful for the people I have met through Best Buddies.
Why is inclusion important to you?
Inclusion is important to me because it means that everyone has a place where they feel like they can belong and everybody deserves a strong inclusive support system like the community built with Best Buddies.
