In Playing for Others, we believe that all people are deserving of love and acceptance. The PFO Buddy Program pairs our teens with children with a disability and their siblings for a year-long adventure, in the interest of creating deep and lasting friendships based on the recognition that people are people, regardless of ability, condition or diagnosis.
Teens and their “buddies” enjoy monthly events where they experience the arts, explore the community and even give back through community service.
The events calendar for 2020-2021 will be released soon. Please review the dates from 2019-2020 below, as an example of our season.
