Junior Teen FriendsFriendship IS a Mitzvah!
Each session builds on the previous lessons and helps our JTFs reach a level of confidence in spending time with a special friend. During this program they will be paired with current Friendship Circle Teen Friends and participate in actual Friendship Circle programs with children who have special needs. At the completion of the program, our JTF graduates receive a certificate of completion.
