It was a dream to see everyone in person again. This past Sunday we had our annual volunteer kickoff and orientation and it was a huge success. The kickoff is a great way for new and veteran volunteers to develop new skills, meet new friends, and get excited about all of the great programs Friendship Circle has to offer. The theme was “rise and shine” where everyone wore their brightest and shiniest apparel.

At the kickoff we had an educational workshop where volunteers had the opportunity to ask questions, play telephone pictionary, and enjoy our pancake/waffle/bagel bar. We were also lucky to have three special guests come and offer their unique perspectives: Tom Acker, an FC parent, Rebecca Berg, an occupational therapist, and Spencer Freedman. Spencer talked with the volunteers about his experience growing up with autism. He is an advocate for kids and adults with autism and is also the center forward for the Shoreline Spartans in the Special Olympics of Washington!
