Best Buddies

Students at Seagull Academy for Independent Living (SAIL) have been affiliated with the Best Buddies organization since 2013.  SAIL participants are paired with visiting Best Buddies high school students from A.W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts during the school year. SAIL and Best Buddies students collaborate in Art & Music workshops, culminating in the SAIL annual “Art & Science of Cooking” event during which students display their visual artwork and perform musical compositions they have created during the workshops.  The Best Buddies organization is dedicated to creating opportunities for one-on-one friendships and leadership training for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
