I am thrilled to tell you that Best Buddies will be back despite Covid-10 for the school year 2020-2021!! The program will look very different. It will be all virtual to start- calls, emails and online meetings with your Purdue Buddy. We will move forward with other types of meetings depending on how things go with the state and local Covid-19 restrictions. I will be releasing The Arc of Tippecanoe County’s Covid-19 restrictions for fall programming next week.
I wanted to get things started with our online registrations. You can go to www.bestbuddiesonline.org and use your username/email from last year to register for this school year. Make sure you update your emergency contact and own contact information. If you forgot your information to log on, just email me and I will fix you up.
I am also very happy to tell you we have a new Tippy Arc Best Buddy Coordinator for this year, Katie Ceglio. Katie joined our Tippy Arc Board this year and is a past officer of the Purdue Chapter of Best Buddies. Welcome Katie!!
Look for more information next week about Best Buddies- including our Covid-19 plan and office hours to sign up people without computers. As always SHARE, SHARE, SHARE with all of your friends who are 18 to 40. Let’s match up 60 people this year and make it our best year yet. We can overcome these challenges!!
Boiler Up!! And Achieve with US!!
PS- The Arc is also doing our annual membership drive. In order to make sure we have your contact information for Adult Recreation, Aktion Club, Best Buddies and Arc on the Go, update your membership information. If you are over 18 sign up for an Individual Membership. This helps us with future programming and ensuring we have everyone’s correct contact information. Go to www.arcoftippecanoe.org and click the Free Membership tab. It is a quick three minute app.
