About Friendship Circle
The Friendship Circle promotes a greater awareness and understanding of the unique needs and the unique gifts of people with special needs, and encourages respect and empathy for those facing challenges. Children and teens with special needs and their families benefit from a wide array of innovative respite, social, and recreational programs. The Volunteer Club motivates, inspires and enriches the lives of the teen mentors. The Friendship Circle in Toronto includes volunteers from 19 high schools across the GTA, Thornhill and Richmond Hill. Friendship Circle is made up of 5 jewels: children, families, volunteers, staff and supporters. The beauty of the circle is how we all link together to form a seamless circle of friendship.
