Best Buddies Northeastern

Best Buddies Northeastern pairs people with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities (IDD) in one-to-one friendships with Northeastern University students. NU Buddies empower the special abilities of people with IDD by helping them form meaningful friendships with their peers, secure successful jobs, live independently, improve leadership and communication skills, and feel valued by society.

By becoming a College Buddy, Northeastern volunteers offer their Buddies the chance to explore a new way of life.
