Best Buddies Partnership with Aptiv

Aptiv & UW-La Crosse Have Teamed Up Again! 

The mission of Best Buddies Colleges is to provide an opportunity for individuals who have intellectual and developmental disabilities (Buddies) to be matched in a one-to-one friendship with college students (Peer Buddies). 

As an Aptiv participant with a developmental or intellectual disability between the ages of 18 and 40, you can take advantage of this opportunity by  signing up to be a Buddy!  

  • Click "Join Best Buddies” in the purple box to the right

  • Step by step instructions are on the next/back page

  • You will be matched with a UWL Peer Buddy

  • Plan on getting together with your UWL Peer Buddy at least 2 times per month (virtually or in person) for the 2023-2024 school year.
