JMS Best Buddies works for inclusion, advocacy, and empowerment for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities around our school using one-to-one friendships. This program is not a mentorship, but is a program creating friendships where both people are equally important and equally benefiting from the relationship. It is so much fun and we would love to have you. If you are interested please fill out the form or let Mr. Pleasant know.
