Friendship Circle programming connects community teens with young people with special needs several times a week – through Children Circle, Teen Clubs, Soccer Training, Drumming Circle and Friends@Home visits. And during school holidays through Day Camps. Our special events are community hits, while volunteer trainings and school presentations are educating our community.

The lasting value of Friendship Circle lies in the community teens who are empowered to bridge the gap between young people with special needs and their communites.

Organiser Rabbi Sender Kavka said: ” I would just like to thank everyone that made this day so amazing. The event committee. The many volunteers on the day; setting up, packing away, manning the various tables. The fun for the kids; BarakaArt, Vanity Photo Booth, Hummer Limos and Jumping Castle King. The VIPs; the Hon. Malcolm Turnbul, Councilman Jeff Zulman, Maccabi Rubgy Team, Emma Louise Birdsall and of course…400m finalist Steven Solomon.
