Best Buddies Jobs represents one of our organization’s three pillars, Integrated Employment. This program fosters the integration of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) into the community through supported employment.
The program also assists individuals to locate and maintain jobs of their own choosing, by providing ongoing support and training. Our focus is on developing competitive, integrated jobs, which allow individuals to earn an income, pay taxes, and work in an environment alongside others in the community. Best Buddies Jobs matches skilled and qualified individuals with IDD with businesses who are searching for enthusiastic and dedicated employees.
