Best Buddies Program Kicks Off at Belvidere North High School

BELVIDERE (WIFR) -- A new program at Belvidere North High School is pairing up students with those with special needs.

Best Buddies is a nationwide program but locally about 30 students with special needs at Belvidere North are getting to know some of the other students at their school.

To get into the program students had to fill out applications and attend a workshop.

They're committed to talking to their buddy every week and getting together a few times a month.
