Dear Friend,

We just finished our e-Buddies Training Corps orientation, and I am delighted with our 2002 class of interns. We have 12 dedicated interns, from all over the United States, who will be spending their summer teaching e-mail skills to persons with developmental disabilities. Somehow, their enthusiasm is infectious!

My thanks to each of them, and to the e-Buddies staff in Washington, D.C., who hosted their training this week. It is truly inspiring to see so many people come together for a common purpose.

Lisa Derx
e-Buddies Director
