Best Buddies Jobs (BBJ) works to secure jobs for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities through a person-centered approach that links participants with an employment consultant who helps with securing and maintaining enriching employment opportunities. By developing partnerships with employers, assisting with the hiring process, and providing ongoing support to the employee/employer, BBJ is creating inclusive communities as we work to find jobs within the community based on participants’ preferences and goals.
