Best Buddies International is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).

Best Buddies UHS operates as a student-run friendship club, which creates buddy pairs between students with and without disabilities. Best Buddies helps to create an inclusive school climate for students and a community culture of acceptance. Some examples of favorite past activities are: attending a school football game, fall fun, holiday parties, bowling, miniature golf, Special Olympics, the annual Best Buddies Friendship Ball and the annual Best Buddies walk.
