Teen Leadership Board
We offer a variety of unique leadership opportunities for teens who wish to make a deeper commitment to our mission. These programs go hand in hand with our Fellowship Awards, provide comprehensive leadership development, and are excellent credentials on college admissions applications.

Participants gain valuable leadership skills, provide integral support to Friendship Circle programs, and participate in exclusive community engagement activities. Through our dynamic and rewarding meetings, teen leaders engage in group workshops and strategic discussions building the future of Friendship Circle.  We infuse the program with exciting, thought provoking events which raise awareness and strengthen advocacy for the special needs community. Leaders gain hands on experience working along side the FC staff to recruit new members and run our programs.  

Our program offers different tracks which have varying degrees of commitment and responsibility.  These opportunities create various access points for any teen to get involved where they feel comfortable.
