How are you going to make a difference and take the Friendship Circle to a whole new level?

While every Friendship Circle teen volunteer is a leader in our book, we realize that only a select few can make the commitment needed to take their service to the next level. That’s why we created the Leadership Board.

Do you value your experiences with the Friendship Circle? Are you interested in taking it to the next level? If you would like the opportunity to work with your friends and other teens in the area, to gain leadership experience and to be a part of helping The Friendship Circle continue to help families with special needs, the Friendship Circle Leadership Board is for you. Additionally, you will gain valuable leadership, communication and job skills that will benefit you throughout your life.

Before applying please consider if you have time in your schedule to attend monthly meetings and help with various assigned tasks. This is a significant time commitment. This is a one year opportunity. Take this into consideration to make sure that this is the best year for you to apply.

Below are some of the minimum commitments we expect from our leaders:

  • Being an active and responsible Friendship Circle volunteer. Lead by example: be an active Friend@Home volunteer or attend the majority of Sunday Circle sessions.
  • Attending 1.5 - 2 hour monthly leadership meetings.
  • Showing up early/staying after at Sunday Circle and other programs to help set up/clean up.
  • Helping expand our community by recruiting. Reach out to friends and classmates and invite them to join you as a Friendship Circle volunteer.
  • Completing a project of your choice. Through the Leadership Board, you will gain the knowledge and skills to help bring about real change in the world. These tools are offered as motivation as you prepare and complete a year-long project of your personal choice.
  • Representing the Friendship Circle! You will have important and active roles at our annual fundraisers and volunteer events.

Leadership Applications are closed for 2024/25.
