Best Buddies Young Leaders Council

The Young Leaders Council provides the student perspective for Best Buddies International initiatives. Members of the council serve on committees focused on different aspects of Best Buddies involvement to maintain a steady connection between students and Best Buddies International. The council garners and synthesizes student feedback to present and develop student-driven ideas.

The YLC provides its members with the opportunity to incorporate new ideas, build on existing inclusion programs, and share global initiatives with Best Buddies International participants and staff throughout the world.


The Best Buddies Young Leaders Council is a volunteer-driven force dedicated to the education, engagement and empowerment of leaders in Best Buddies through peer-to-peer support and innovation
