Buddies for Games With Friends

Do you like to make new friends while making a difference in the life of others? 

Are you looking for some volunteer hours?

Games with Friends and Fun with Friends are programs at the PAL that provide opportunities for students grades 6-12 to volunteer while playing games, doing arts and crafts and many other fun activities with younger children with and without developmental disabilities.  With the guidance of adults you may be leading a group of younger children or simply participating in the activities as role models.  By participating in these programs, you are showing younger children that everyone can have a friend and be a friend.
