Zac C @ Best Buddies Conference
Best Buddies International is the world’s largest nonprofit organization dedicated to ending the social, physical and economic isolation of the 200 million people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Their programs help people with IDD form meaningful friendships with their peers, secure successful jobs, live independently, improve public speaking, self-advocacy and communication skills, and feel valued by society.The IDD community that Best Buddies serves includes, but is not limited to, people with Down Syndrome, Autism, Fragile X, Williams Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, traumatic brain injury and other undiagnosed disabilities.  

More than 2,200 Best Buddies student leaders, ambassadors, and volunteers from around the world united for a weekend of inspiration and learning from July 21-24 at the 28th Annual Best Buddies Leadership Conference: Pass the Torch!  Senior Zac C. attended the conference for the second time this year! There was another Oklahoma school at the conference and we look forward to the connections made.   Learn more about #BBLC2017 and tune into the live stream at
