Leadership Development at Friendship Circle

Opportunities abound for middle school and high school kids to strengthen their leadership skills through training and volunteer days. Teens can serve as youth leaders in their community and bring The Friendship Circle’s philosophy into their high schools.

Teen Leadership Board: An important part of the mission of The Friendship Circle since day one has been to engage teenagers not only in positive and welcoming social interactions but also in community service and advocacy. Teenagers of every ability face significant pressures in school, at home, and beyond, and oftentimes, those daily pressures can make teens feel isolated and misunderstood. Our goal is to help teens become role models to younger kids and develop as leaders in their communities, especially as they approach a time when they will set out on their own journeys. We want them to overcome any isolation they may feel and be embraced in their community, becoming more well-rounded individuals in the process. With the right encouragement and tools, teens can make a powerful impact on the world and bring about necessary changes for the good of everyone. Our Teen Leadership Board plays an important role in our Friendship & Leadership initiative, as the teens involved are role models not only at The Friendship Circle but also in their schools and communities. The Teen Leadership Board meets regularly throughout the school year, and each session offers a different opportunity to learn and discuss various topics surrounding advocacy and social justice. Participants of all abilities are welcome, as always, and they are asked to fulfill certain requirements prior to joining the Board: they must have attended our Training Tracks classes and Teen Workshop seminars, previously served on a Host Committee (which plan and execute programs), and have been active members of The Friendship Circle.
