CONCORD – Best Buddies and UNH have partnered to bring supportive relationships to more teenagers and young adults with developmental disabilities.
Emily Boysen got involved with Best Buddies her freshman year of college.
“When I was in high school, I was teaching kids with disabilities, and I saw this program and I thought it was a perfect fit,” Boysen said.
Emily is matched up with Thomas Liseno, a fellow student at UNH.
Best Buddies also strives to bring people out and get them involved in activities.
“We go to sports games, sometimes we go out for ice cream,” Liseno said.
The biggest lesson from Best Buddies?
According to Emily - making friends and spending time with others.
