e-Buddies for Parents

Below is information and resources for parents to get their children started with the program as well as tips for making e-Buddies successful.

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. People with intellectual and developmental disabilities are often left out of technology education, denying them access to the abundance of social and creative outlets that can be found using computers and the Internet. e-Buddies provides opportunities for computer literacy, while also forming a new friendship.

e-Buddies is a safe place to gain access to online social outlets. With our controlled E-mail System, parents can be confident that their children are safe, while having fun and developing computer and Internet skills.
