Orientation and Training

The Friendship Circle offers a variety of training sessions for volunteers during the year in addition to a leadership & team building weekend retreat.

All returning and new Friendship Circle volunteers are required to attend an orientation seminar before beginning to volunteer at the Friendship Circle. This interactive seminar helps prepare and train the volunteers, allowing both themselves and their special friend to gain the most from each program.

In addition to a hands on workshop, volunteers will participate in a question & answer series with a local therapist who works with a wide range of children with special needs. The trained therapist will share insightful tips and cues they have learnt over the years, and how best to approach a situation.

If you are unable to attend any of our training sessions please call Sarah Biston 954.970.9551 or email FloridaFriendshipCircle@gmail.com
