Mission Statement

The Friendship Circle extends a helping hand to families who have children with special needs and involves them in a full range of social experiences.

The Circle's unique formula introduces teenage volunteers to the children and through shared experiences both are enriched.

The Friendship Circle offers a unique opportunity for teenagers to connect with these children.

We believe very strongly in rewarding our volunteers' dedication and commitment. To that effect, we have a very fun and exciting volunteer club, giving them an opportunity to meet other teens, go on amazing trips and receive personalized Friendship Circle gear.

Description

Friendship Circle pairs up teens with special needs kids to provide social interaction, mentoring and friendship.

Our flagship program is Friends at Home, where the teens visit the child at his/her home for an hour a week of games, fun and homework help, etc.

Other programs that we have are holiday programs, general programs, birthday programs and an annual family BBQ.
