Create an opportunity for families with young children to experience Friendship Circle early on.

Mission

The mission of our Junior Friends opportunities is to provide the opportunity for younger children of diverse abilities and interests, both within the FC community and in the greater community, to come together and experience FC programming, independently or with their family; to provide the opportunity for fun and friendship in an inclusive environment.

Values

Our Junior Friends operates on the idea that providing unique experiences and an inclusive environment allows for our younger members to begin to establish and develop genuine friendships.

Program Goals
