Best Buddies welcomes any adult in the community with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Volunteer speech coaches are also needed! No experience necessary. Participants do not have to be a member of a Best Buddies program.
Best Buddies – an international nonprofit dedicated to providing opportunities for inclusion for people with IDD – is seeking ambassadors/ self-advocates in the Southern Ohio area to participate in a training. This is a leadership initiative designed to encourage people with IDD to advocate for themselves and their peers through a variety of platforms. Ambassadors work one-on-one with a volunteer speech coach to craft speeches, improve public speaking skills, and understand the basics of advocacy.
Volunteers will be trained and ready to work with an individual with IDD to coach and prepare them to give a speech and practice networking skills. Individuals who have become an Ambassador may coach as well!
Ambassadors and Volunteers RSVP to Connie Mehlman at email@example.com or call 513-785-2881 no later than November 12.
If you have questions, require accommodations, use English as a second language, or have dietary needs, please Contact Abby Rampe at firstname.lastname@example.org or 419-796-9087.
