Our Mission

The Friendship Circle of San Diego (aka FC) enriches the lives of children, teens and adults with special needs through social and recreational experiences while inspiring volunteers to participate in building a stronger and more inclusive community.

Our Volunteers

Friendship Circle Volunteers establish bonds of friendship with their peers who have special needs. They become advocates for their new friends, expand their social circles and receive community service hours while having fun!

Teen Leadership

Friendship Circle’s Teen Leadership Project was created to get San Diego teens involved in community service. As a Project Participant you will learn valuable life skills such as: planning, communicating, coping with change, managing time and motivating others.

Our Programs

Friendship Circle provides remarkable programs for friends, families and volunteers of all ages. Take a look and give us a call! We are happy to help set you up with the right group and introduce you to some amazing new friends!
