Impact Project

Best Buddies Wofford matches individuals with intellectual or developmental disorders into one-to-one friendships with college students. These mutually beneficial friendships aim to promote acceptance and understanding by breaking down socially induced boundaries and appreciating each other for who we really are.

Currently, Best Buddies Wofford is comprised of approximately 20 dedicated, genuine college students looking to leave an impact on the community.  We spend time with athletes from the Area 6 Special Olympics individually in our Buddy Pairs and also together when we hold large group events.

Best Buddies Wofford is dedicated to service.  We plan to volunteer at numerous Special Olympics events, the Carolina Miracle League, and similar organizations throughout the year.
