|Best Buddies Delaware Citizens|
Best Buddies Citizens matches people with intellectual disabilities in one-to-one friendships with individuals in the corporate and civic communities. Friends and family are the foundation that help human beings become successful. Without love, support, and friends, our lives would be empty - a life people with intellectual disabilities have been forced to live throughout history. Since 1993, volunteers are changing lives by simply sharing their time with a new friend.
Best Buddies Citizen, High School, and College programs are evaluated each spring by the Hardman Survey. Dr. Michael Hardman, Dean of Special Education from the University of Utah, surveys Best Buddies participants throughout the country every year.
