Get Involved!


Know the feeling you get when you're around friends who really care for you, who really love you, who really SEE you? Every person deserves this, regardless of ability. Be part of giving back and providing this amazing feeling to children and teens with special needs!

The Friendship Circle helps build a community of compassionate young leaders. Through many volunteer opportunities, training events, volunteer-only educational activities and more, teens develop important leadership and life skills.

Teens also learn the importance of giving and being accepting of others. Working with children with special needs transforms teens into more caring, sensitive people who have a more concrete sense of identity. The experiences they share with the children help teens develop a communal sense of responsibility and teach them to embrace every individual with love and acceptance.
