The Buddy Match Program
The WeEMBRACE Buddymatch Program is an individualized 1:1 program offered for children/adults (buddies) with different abilities to meet people and make new friends. This program is designed to provide opportunities to neurodiverse individuals to interact with peers outside school. Buddies will meet with their paired volunteer once a week (currently virtual due to COVID-19), and build social/communication skills through conversation. Volunteer buddies are trained and guided on an ongoing basis.
