    I will promote the creation of a friendship community based on mutual respect and a sense of personal well-being. I will treat others with honor and respect because we are all created in the image of G-d.

    As a volunteer of Friendship Circle:

    • Parents should be told encouraging things about their children. Any negative feedback should be told to staff and NOT parents.

    • Feedback should be emailed to [email protected]

    • Volunteer hours must be logged on our FCConnect App no later then a month after the program in order for it to be accepted.
