Mitzvah Volunteer Program (MVP)

Mitzvah Volunteer Program, for boys are girls ages 11 - 13, is a program that will teach the art of giving, volunteering and making a difference in your community and the world today. 

The Friendship Circle Mitzvah Volunteer program is a perfect way for kids to prepare for their Bar/ Bat Mitzvah and qualifies as a Mitzvah Project. Over the course of 5 weeks the young teens will learn about various disabilities through  hands on activities, inspirational speakers, multimedia presentations and other interactive avenues. Upon finishing all 5 weeks the children will implement everything they have learnt in an event planned exclusively by them for some of our children with special needs. 

 

The Friendship Circle is a local non profit organisation that assists children, teens and adults with special needs. Through creative, and Judaic programming, innovative events, friendship, home visits and more we help build and foster relationships between the volunteers and their special buddies.   

 

The cost of this program is $10 for all 5 sessions. To register your child for our Mitzvah Volunteer program please fill out the form below. For more information, please call 954.970.9551.
