You’re a teen through and through. You love CDs, DVDs, and cool clothes. But, you can’t make a difference with just great gear. It takes other must-haves like time, friendship, or being a volunteer!
Say “yes” to volunteering time and friendship, because we know someone who really needs a Friend its a child with special needs. The Friendship Circle has four terrific ways for you to be a part of something that’s really incredible.
We know teens can and do make a difference, and the mitzvah of being a Circle volunteer is a great way to give an extraordinary gift to an extraordinary kid! Hey, you’ll make lots of new friends too! Why not enjoy activities with other teens just like you, teens who know that giving to others makes you feel better about yourself and the world!
So, here are the three ways. First is Friends@Home. Second, the Children’s Circle. Third, our Holiday Programs.
Wanna know more?
Friends@Home! That’s right! We’ll match you, and another teen, with a child who has special needs. You’ll both make a weekly visit to your Special Friends home to share activities. The personal rewards are awesome!
Think “coffee break.” Think “down time.” Think what you’ll do for the parents who really need a breather!
R U ready for some give and take? Then the Children’s Circle is the place for you. Give a few hours, take back satisfaction and experience. Two Sunday mornings a month, you will work one-on-one helping a Special Friend. With the assistance of professional music and art therapists, you’ll help the kids groove to tunes, jump start creativity, enjoy story-telling, and all sorts of sports.
Wanna celebrate? Then being a part of our Holiday Programs is the way to go. Your Special Friend gets to celebrate holidays together with the whole family making memories along the way. It’s anything but ordinary!
Lots of extras to the Friendship Circle, too. Special benefits like awesome trips, educational workshops, training programs, and cool social events.
