Programs

Best Buddies Colombia works since 2003 in three lines: the generation of job opportunities, the development of social skills through friendship, and raising funds that allow us to expand our impact in Colombia.

 

Jobs

Our history in the Jobs program has been marked by the trust and credibility of employers, the clear commitment of parents and institutions, and young people who are eager to get ahead, to be useful, to have a salary, a place to which belong and be, finally, a source of pride for their families and for themselves.

It has been a great adventure full of challenging obstacles. 80% of the young people that make part of our Integrated Employment program are part of challenging economic conditions ranked 1, 2, and 3 of vulnerability; thanks to Best Buddies Colombia, and the training and preparation that we offer by our Jobs program, individuals with IDD are now the economic engine and major income source of their households!
