Your child will gain the confidence of being an essential and accepted member of a social group. This program was designed to create a true social home base for our special teens, at the age where a social group can be defining and a necessity. Teen volunteers and teens with special needs get together twice a month for social activities and group “hang outs”, where they can have a great time while enhancing social skills along the way!
Young Adult Circle
Thursdays : 6:00pm – 7:30pm
For Ages 18+
Young adult volunteers and young adults with special needs come together twice a month to form a social group of friends in a non- judgmental and accepting environment, while having a great time and enhancing their social skills along the way! The group has experienced an array of exciting activities, such as karaoke, unique art activities, and even baking with ingredients which they shopped for on their own.
Volunteer Meetings are opportunities for all volunteers to hear from professionals in the special needs field on a wide range of topics. The volunteers are encouraged to ask questions and engage in an interactive discussion. Examples of topics are: How to Be a Friend to a Child with Special Needs, Reinforcing and encouraging Your Friends, Self Awareness and Safety. We encourage all our volunteers to attend these fun and educational events.
Mom's Night Out
Dispersed throughout the year, the Mom’s Night Out provides an evening of socializing, entertainment, and a chance to relax while meeting other moms in the community involved with the Friendship Circle. From Spa Evenings to lectures from renowned educators, these events give way to new and lasting friendships and a moment to enjoy and focus on… you!
