How are you going to make a difference and take the Friendship Circle to a whole new level?

While  every Friendship Circle teen volunteer is a leader in our book, we realize that only a select few can make the commitment needed to take their service to the next level. That’s why we created the Leadership Board. 

Do you value your experiences with the Friendship Circle? Are you interested in taking it to the next level? If you would like the opportunity to work with your friends and other Jewish teens in the area, to gain leadership experience and to be a part of helping The Friendship Circle continue to help families with special needs, the Friendship Circle Leadership Board is for you. Additionally, you will gain valuable leadership, communication and job skills that will benefit you throughout your life.

Before applying please consider if you have time in your schedule to attend monthly meetings and help with various assigned tasks.  This is a significant time commitment . This is a one year opportunity. Take this into consideration to make sure that this is the best year for you to apply.

Being in the Leadership Board means you are  committing  to: 

  • Being an active and responsible Friendship Circle volunteer . Lead by example: be an active Friend@Home volunteer or attend 2 of 4 Sunday Circle sessions. 
  • Attending 1.5 - 2 hour monthly meetings.  *Two excused absences from monthly meetings will be allowed for a valid reason with prior notice to the Program Coordinator. 
  • Helping expand our community by recruiting . Reach out to friends and classmates and invite them to join you as a Friendship Circle volunteer. 
  • Completing a project of your choice. Through the Leadership Board, you will gain the knowledge and skills to help bring about real change in the world. These tools are offered as motivation as you prepare and complete a year-long project of your personal choice. 
  • Represent the Friendship Circle! You will have important and active roles at our annual fundraisers and volunteer events.
