The Donald Klein Teen Fellowship Award

The Friendship Circle’s Teen Fellowship award is awarded to volunteers that show outstanding commitment to Friendship Circle Activities.

The Teen Fellowship award is a $50 US savings bond for use as a College Scholarship. This will add tremendous prestige to your college application as it portrays that you were successful and a valuable asset to our organization.

The Teen Fellowship awards will be awarded at the annual “Celebration of Friends” event.


A minimum of 40 hours (as recorded online through FC Connect website).

Volunteer must attend a minimum of 2 training sessions (also recorded on your online account)

Volunteer must write a one-page essay describing what Friendship Circle has meant to you or design a brochure, poster, or webpage explaining Friendship Circle.

All eligible teens will be notified in the spring of the program year.

Points, credits and hours will only be recognized if volunteers record their activities on FC Connect.

Volunteers can earn one Fellowship Award each academic school year.

The Fellowship Award Criteria may change on a year to year basis.
