It's a Virtual Party with a Purpose!

While we can't convene in person, nothing can stop us from celebrating inclusion. Our participants need us now more than ever and we need your support.

Thank You for Helping Us Stay Connected

Best Buddies in Minnesota believes that everyone belongs in our schools, communities and workplaces and are working hard to make sure that is a reality in our state, especially during COVID-19. As our participants, students and volunteers practice social distancing to keep themselves and our communities safe, the mental health implications from that isolation can be devastating. We are working together with all of you to adapt virtually and are committed to making sure that social distancing does not mean social isolation for our participants. Thank you for supporting our mission of inclusion, when it's needed most.
