Mitzvah Volunteer Program (MVP)

We are presenting an exciting opportunity to 12 and 13 year old youth throughout King County. The Friendship Circle Mitzvah Volunteer Program (MVP) engages 12 and 13 year old youth in volunteerism and community involvement in a meaningful hands-on way. Volunteering with the Friendship Circle is a serious, year-long commitment, one that younger teens are often not ready to make.

The MVP program enables these youth to be positively involved in their community, but it requires less of a time commitment. MVP youth receive sensitivity and general volunteer training, preparing them to become active community members and full-fledged FC volunteers. At the end of their training, MVP youth use what they have learned to plan a special community event for Friendship Circle families and volunteers.

 

Through MVP you will learn:

o Appropriate conduct when volunteering .

o The importance of giving back to the community.

o The impact you can have on others.

o You will help coordinate and plan a culminating event for children with

special needs and their families where you will have a hands-on

volunteer experience.

 

Participants must:

o Attend 4 meetings (1.5 hours each).

o Help plan, coordinate and volunteer at a family fun event.
