As a current senior, I look back on the seven years volunteering at the Philly Friendship Circle. Throughout my years at the Friendship Circle, I have created countless valuable friendships with both fellow volunteers and with my buddies. I have learned the power and importance of inclusion, become more receptive to differences, and more patient and empathetic. As someone who has been on the different leadership boards throughout high school currently serving as the Teen Board Liasion (the teen representative to the adult board), I have firsthand seen the importance of this organization, and the impact it makes on both volunteers and their families, and buddies and their families. Please join me in walking with the Philly Friendship Circle, and help by donating to support the special needs community.
Thank you all!
