Friend in Me is a non-profit group that connects kids with disabilities with volunteer students for online games and conversations on a weekly basis. Each session is free and runs approximately half an hour and three sessions are made available per week. The goal is to develop long-term friendships. Games include, but are not limited to, Pictionary, Hangman, Connect 4, Tic tac toe, Charades, Scattergories, Eye Spy, Roblox, Kahoot, Minecraft, Checkers & Chess, 20 Questions, Battleship, and Uno.
Every effort is made to pair the same kids together each week when a good fit is found. Participants may sign up for as many or as few sessions as they like. Friend in Me is for kids with disabilities between the ages of 8 and 18. Parents/aides are welcome to facilitate if needed.
