Welcome to New York Friendship Circle!

We challenge teenagers to give their time, patience, and love. The payment is a unique friendship with someone who will immediately accept you, come to love you, and never forget you. 

Volunteering with NY Friendship Circle means hours and hours of fun in a constructive, affirming environment. It means getting to meet other teenagers who are committed, caring, and responsible. It means gaining a sense of security and self-esteem that comes from knowing that what you do makes a difference in the life of a child. 

By joining the NY Friendship Circle volunteer club you join hundreds of teenagers world wide who are committed, excited and motivated to learn more and do more. The beauty of the NY Friendship Circle is your devotion to that special child.
