DSANV Summer Buddy Program!

Since we can only have a limited amount of in-person social interaction this summer, DSANV is creating a Virtual Buddy Program! Self Advocates will be paired up with High School students from either the Young Men’s Service League (YMSL) or the National Charity League (NCL).

DSANV has enjoyed a long-standing relationships with YMSL and NCL. YMSL is a service organization for moms and their high school sons, and NCL is a service organization for moms and their daughters from seventh to twelfth grade.

We plan to have members of YMSL and NCL serve as Buddys to self advocates. Participates can take part in one-on-one and group calls online using Google Meet. The Google Meet calls will be an opportunity to socialize and practice conversation skills.YMSL and NCL Moms will help guide the conversation.

Through the Virtual Buddy Program, we plan for YMSL to run weekly BINGO games on Friday evenings from 6:00PM – 7:00PM. Please click HERE to sign up for the Virtual Buddy Program. Click HERE to sign up for group chats and HERE for Friday night BINGO. BINGO has a $5 registration fee.
