I heard about e-Buddies at a Best Buddies Chapter meeting in my school. I wanted to volunteer for e-Buddies, but my application won't go through. Any idea why?
It's so wonderful you would want to volunteer for a program as great as e-Buddies. Unfortunately, we are not taking any volunteers at this time. We have had so many volunteers sign up, that they are waiting months to be matched. The good news is that when the buddies (person with an intellectual disability) sign up, they are matched right away! One thing you can do is work with your chapter on getting your buddies signed up for the e-Buddies Program. Work with the e-Buddies Coordinator in your chapter, as well as your Best Buddies Program Manager. Thanks for the interest!!!
