Today, we played whiffle-ball and had a marshmallow tower-building competition with the Buddies. It was a lot of fun, and a great opportunity for teamwork!
Today, we painted a poster to “Spread the Word to End the Word” with our Buddies. We talked about why we have “Spread the Word to End the Word,” and how important our campaign is.
At Orientation, we talked about Best Buddies and had experienced members share their thoughts. We learned about appropriate ways to treat people with IDD, and how to maximize our one-on-one experiences with the buddies.
It was nice to review some of what it means to work with people who have IDD. I am excited for Best Buddies this semester! :)
