Friendship Fellows

Mission: 

The mission of the Friendship Fellows program is to provide an experience in which individuals of diverse abilities contribute to The Friendship Circle office in meaningful ways, gain confidence in their abilities, and learn new skills, all while being immersed in a supportive environment. 

About Us:

We believe that all individuals have valuable assets. By supporting and enhancing those assets in The Friendship Circle office, the individual served in the Friendship Fellows Program will gain confidence in their abilities and will be able to contribute in meaningful ways in and out of The Friendship Circle.

 

The Friendship Fellows contribute to Friendship Circle in various ways: 

  • In-Office Program

    • Our in-office Friendship Fellows program is comprised of 12 adult individuals who come into our Friendship Circle office on a weekly basis to assist in completing a multitude of office projects.
  • Community Partnerships 

    • The mission of our collaborations with community employers is to foster a connection that leads to a better understanding of the value of hiring Friendship Fellow members. 
  • Virtual “Hellos with Fellows”

    • Since March of 2020, we have been able to accommodate our Friendship Fellows members on a virtual platform by hosting weekly “Hellos with Fellows” meetings from home. These meetings are a way for each Fellow to touch base with the Friendship Fellows Coordinator to catch up, participate in at-home projects, and brainstorm ways that they can continue to contribute. 
  • Additional Friendship Fellows Contributions:

    • Blog 
      • The Friendship Fellows are the main contributors to our Friendship Circle blog. The blog allows Fellows members to express their interests, and showcase their posts to the greater community on a weekly basis.

FC Activity Report: 7/30/2020 – Poetry

On July 29th, 2020, at 10:00 AM, I signed on to Zoom for a Friendship Circle session involving poetry. Following a review of the Rules of Respect, the participants were asked if they would rather have the power of flight or underwater breathing. After that, they used word magnets (or rather, an online version of such) to write poetry, as… Read More

Fan Fic Genres By Sarah Lehman

In my last blog post, I discussed some common terms used by fan fic writers. This time, I’d like to talk about genres, or types of story. Like the stories they’re based on, fan fics can be sorted into several different genres. Romance is one of the most common, but you also have adventure, drama, horror, humor, and so on.… Read More
