The Arc Kicks off Best Buddies Program with Seton Hall University

May 6th, 2019

On Saturday, May 4th The Arc of Essex County excitedly kicked-off a partnership with the newly formed Best Buddies chapter at Seton Hall University.  Best Buddies creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships and leadership development for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

To celebrate the formation of and partnership with the Seton Hall University chapter, a group of Arc of Essex County respite program attendees bonded with Seton Hall students at a pizza party, then broke off into teams for a campus-wide scavenger hunt.  The Arc of Essex County participants enjoyed exploring the campus, getting to know their new friends, and posing for photos with the Seton Hall Pirate.  The Arc looks forward to the Fall semester to continue the fun!
