Sunday Circle:

One Sunday a month, professional instructors and a team of teen volunteers lead children, ages 8-16, through art, yoga, music, cooking, sports, and animal play. Through these experiences, children with special needs develop and practice important life skills in a comfortable setting catered to their specific needs.

Sunday Circle was created to encourage community integration and facilitate new friendships. Each child will be paired with a teen buddy for a fun and enriching experience while learning about Jewish holidays and values under the guidance of professional instructors and the support of a skilled professional.

Positive interactions with 'neuro-typical' teens strengthen the children’s identity and self-esteem by giving them a sense of belonging within the community. These interactions benefit volunteers as well, teaching them leadership and compassion.

Parents benefit by receiving much needed respite. At Sunday Circle, parents entrust their children in the care of qualified professionals, Friendship Circle staff, and their one-on-one teen buddies. While kids enjoy structured group activities, parents enjoy a few sacred moments of free time on a Sunday morning.
