Service-Learning with Best Buddies

Serve while forming new friendships!!!

Have you been wanting to participate in Best Buddies? Here's your chance! You can participate in weekly service through The Shriver Center while enrolled in the 096 Community Service & Learning Practicum.

The Shriver Center Service-Learning & Community Engagement team in collaboration with UMBC Best Buddies is happy to announce that we have established another site at Itineris, in Baltimore, for the Spring 2019 semester and beyond! We are currently looking for about 4 or 5 service learners for Spring 2019 who have time for a weekly volunteering commitment at Itineris around 3:00-5:00 PM (one day a week). You would be paired one-to-one with a friend with a diagnosis of autism and hang out with your buddy during that time! 

If you are interested, please email President, Miranda Zeng at mirzeng1@umbc.edu or Program Coordinator, Kasey Venn at kasven1@umbc.edu so that we can set up an interview!
