Welcome to Southeastern Louisiana University 

About Us:
Best Buddies 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).

Our chapter matches Southeastern Students in one-to-one friendships with individuals from Evergreen Life Services-Northlake. Together, we talk with our new friends at least once a week, spend time together at least two times a month and gather as a group at least one time per month.

As a result of their involvement with Best Buddies, people with IDD secure rewarding jobs, live on their own, become inspirational leaders, and make lifelong friendships.
