Bay Area Friendship Circle embraces children with special needs, of all levels, involving them in a full range of social and educational experiences. Children's programs run year-round ranging from Summer and Winter Camps to Sunday Circle held every other Sunday during the school year.                                           


The Friendship Circle Volunteer Club offers teens 8th - 12th grades, the opportunity to meet tons of other teens as giving, committed and fun-loving as you are! Throughout the year, various programs and activities are planned for you get to know other teens, become a more motivated and experienced volunteer, and to have fun!


The Friendship Circle is made up of five parts: teen volunteers, children, parents, staff and supporters. When all five parts link together we create a welcoming environment and enriching programs for children with special needs. At the same time, we provide our teen volunteers with opportunities for personal growth and development.
