Belvidere hosts ice cream social to kick off Best Buddies program

BELVIDERE (WREX) - The Belvidere School District held an ice cream social Wednesday to kick off its Best Buddies program.

The program will be housed at Belvidere North High School and pair 30 life skills students with general education students in order to create more social opportunities for students with special needs and create more interaction between general education students and those with special needs.

Students interested in participating submitted applications, went to a workshop, and committed to contacting their partner each week and meeting with them two times a month.
