Circle of Friends is

A national non-profit organization promoting inclusion, friendship and respect. We are an inclusive social skills program composed of dedicated students who believe that making a difference in someone's life is just as important as acing a test. We build bridges between students of all abilities by creating a circle of friends around students with communication challenges. In an effort to eliminate bullying from our campus, we provide "Ability Awareness" trainings and meet weekly during lunch to socialize because it's "Never Too Late To Make A Friend." Everyone is welcome.
