Welcome to MIT Best Buddies!

MIT Best Buddies is a volunteer organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of individuals with intellectual disabilities through one-on-one friendships.

Students are paired with buddies (i.e., individuals with intellectual disabilities) each year and take part in both individual and group activities. Student-buddy pairs regularly chat on the phone and make individuals outings (the nature of which are up to the buddy pair). Every semester, we hold group activities in and around MIT and the Boston area. Some of our activities include making cards for children in hospitals, watching movies at the LSC, taking the Duck Tour, and attending a Celtics game, to name a few.

Please feel free to browse our site and contact us anytime about participation or if you have any questions!
