e-Buddies for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Below is information and resources for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to get started and have a successful experience with e-Buddies.

e-Buddies is an e-mail pen pal program that provides opportunities for one-to-one e-mail friendships between people with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities.

When you join e-Buddies, you will be matched in a friendship with someone from another state. You will then be asked to send an e-mail every week to your e-Buddy. Click on the links below to find out if e-Buddies is right for you.
