One of our most exemplary buddy pairs is Jen Potocki and Hope Blevins. Hope and Jen met at our Paint Nite event at the Mispillion Art League. It was Hope’s first event as a new buddy and Jen was there assisting her mom, Miss Judy, who volunteers to run the event.
It is nearly impossible to return from our annual Best Buddies Leadership Conference (BBLC) without feeling inspired. Individual and group discussions about disability rights advocacy fuel the entire weekend. Guest speakers discuss the inclusion movement and performers with and without disabilities unite.
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.
