What are the goals of the Promoters program?
Chapter activities and events address four areas of focus: awareness, engagement, empowerment, and interaction. Awareness to educate chapter members, peers, and the community on the disability rights movement. Engagement to get peers in the school and members in the community involved in Best Buddies. Empowerment to provide people with the opportunity to be a leader and a voice for Best Buddies. This includes chapter members serving as advocates of Best Buddies and getting Ambassadors to attend and speak at promoter chapter events. And interaction to provide opportunities for interaction with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Planning events with these areas of focus in mind ensures each chapter makes the greatest impact possible in their school and community.
