Friendship Circle Pairs Special Needs Teens With Their Peers
Creating friendships when you're a teenager can be difficult. That's why The Friendship Circle was formed, an organization that pairs teens with kids who have special needs.
Teens gather to spend a couple hours of their day forming meaningful friendships with kids who may not have regular opportunities to socialize, have fun and feel like they are one in the gang. In addition, the parents of kids with special needs, get free time to give back to themselves, have a coffee, go shopping and indulge in a little relaxation. Check out this video and watch Norwalk, CT teens form lasting friendships that change lives.
"Doing Friendship Circle is its own reward," noted volunteer Doron Feller. "Seeing a moment of relaxation or enjoyment on a kids face is a great moment. I'm a completely different person because of Friendship Circle."
Watch how these Norwalk, CT teens form lasting friendships and discover that they receive as much as they give.
