The Tufts chapter of Best Buddies pairs college students with adults who have mild to moderate intellectual disabilities to form meaningful friendships. Buddy pairs meet weekly at a local organization where the Buddies are employed (within a 5min walk from campus) and attend periodic chapter-wide events together. Becoming involved in Best Buddies is an opportunity to make a difference in someone's life by forming friendships that these adults may otherwise never have the opportunity to experience.

Help volunteer to bridge the gap between two generations. We are a new and motivated part of LCS looking for other Tufts students to help bring youthful activities and their own interests to the elderly. Come to bring Wii, dancing, movie screenings, magic shows, and music performances to local senior citizens! "We're more than just bingo."
