Best Buddies Club
The BBC at Wakefield was established in 2005 and it is a part of greater Best Buddies International which is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of people with intellectual disabilities by providing opportunities for mutually enriching one-to-one friendships.
Life Skills students are paired with general ed. students into Buddy pairs according to their common interests. Wakefield BBC meets once or twice a month for fun activities and field trips which encourage interaction and communication between the students. Meeting dates are announced several days in advance.
Meet 2 Thursdays per month
