To promote our inclusive environment, our buddies are local high school students who not only help our Shining Stars learn new things but they have also developed strong friendships with one another!

“I have really enjoyed getting to know everyone and making so many new friends has been awesome!! I look forward to being a buddy with Shining Stars through my years in high school.” – Jane Howlett

“My favorite Shining Stars show is “Music Through the Decades”. My favorite performance was “The Way You Make Me Feel” because I choreographed the dancers in the background.” – Diego Colon
