Friendship Circle focuses on developing the values of altruism, compassion, and acceptance in teen volunteers as they heighten community awareness and sensitivity and encourage a sense of responsibility and involvement. Volunteers bring happiness and companionship to children with special needs by celebrating their individuality, as well as bringing energy, support, and peace of mind to their families.
Friendship Circle is seeking volunteer counselors for their SPARK camp program for adults with disabilities. Volunteers are needed to lead activities, classes, and assist campers. Groups of campers will range from small (3-5) to large (15). Training will be provided for volunteers. If volunteer brings own supplies to teach/lead activity, volunteer will be reimbursed.
Commitment: 1-2 hour shifts, between 9am-3pm Monday-Friday. The longer the shift, the better!
Location: Owings Mills/Reisterstown
Restrictions: Volunteers must be at least 18 years old. Volunteers as young as 12 are welcome, but must have parent/guardian supervision.
