Best Buddies is an international organization that matches people who have intellectual disabilities (IDD) and developmental disabilities (DD) in meaningful one-to-one friendships with volunteers who do not have disabilities.  We participate in a wide range of activities throughout the year to enhance our friendships and relationships.  Some of the things we do together include a bon fire, Prom at the Bridgestone Arena, holiday party, wide variety of special olympic activities and the campaign to "Spread the Word to End the Word". The high school years are a time of heightened social and emotional development which can be difficult even for those without IDD. Best Buddies Harpeth High helps break through social barriers at an important time in a young person’s life.  This is where friendships are made.
