Best Buddies


Best Buddies is an international non-profit dedicated to enhancing the lives of people with intellectual disabilities by providing one-on-one friendships. At UCSD, college students are paired with their own buddy from the San Diego TRACE programs. The year-long commitment allows everlasting friendships to grow. Each pair is expected to speak once a week, and meet once a month in order to ensure that a friendship is forming. To help make this happen, UCSD Best Buddies has monthly events that are fun and exciting.

If you are interested in joining Best Buddies, please stop by the Volunteer Connection Office for more information. If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact the program director at
