wee dream 20161115_164221

The Social Buddy program allows local children and teens to act as peer mentors for the Have Dreams participants. We provide training for these volunteers to actively assist program staff during program activities on-site. Social Buddies are asked to commit to volunteering for one class per week for the session. Have Dreams staff also mentors our young volunteers who are interested in pursuing careers in autism and special education.

Social Buddies must be 12-18 years old. To apply, please download the Social Buddy Application (below) and send it to Dana Fenceroy at dlabrose@havedreams.org. Contact Dana at 847-685-0250 with any questions.

Please note: Have Dreams does not permit court-ordered community service hours.
