The Friendship Circle

The NY Friendship Circle ’s unique approach brings together teenage volunteers and children with special needs for hours of fun and friendship. These shared experiences empower children with special needs, while enriching the lives of everyone involved. Teenage volunteers learn the priceless value of giving, the power of friendship and the vital importance of integrating children with special needs into the community.

Every member of our community deserves to share the joys of our experience. Sharing our friendship with children who have special needs is particularly rewarding. The Friendship Circle offers a unique opportunity for teenagers to connect with these children.


 

The Friendship Circle touches so many in our community:

  • The child with special needs looks forward to a weekly visit and the opportunity to play with and learn from their older friends.
  • The teenage volunteer learns the value of giving and cherishes the experience of making a difference in a child's life and bringing a smile to his or her face.
  • The child's family gets a needed respite and the pleasure of seeing their child become part of the community circle.

Together we are impacting our future by making a difference in the lives of children and teens in our community and helping them form a special bond.
