Volunteers

Join a community where people of all abilities spend time together, form friendships and learn from each other. We develop volunteers with the tools necessary to build a society that is truly inclusive of everyone.

We offer a range of programs that are suitable for teen and adult volunteers. The programs may require a regular commitment during school terms or be a one-off program during school holidays.

At Sydney Friendship Circle, we empower young people to come together, make a difference and create a world that is inclusive and accepting of everyone regardless of their abilities.

By volunteering at Friendship Circle you will learn the skills to lead the world through change. You will build your leadership skills, develop your emotional intelligence, learn about yourself and others, advocate, and grow as a person.

“Friendship Circle has literally changed my life. I have become a kinder person, a more compassionate person and more conscious of others around me. Friendship Circle has made me an excellent problem solver and has really shaped who I am today” – Tali

The following programs are open for Teen Volunteers:

  • Sunday Circle (fortnightly during school terms)
  • Sports Club: Team Sports and Gymnastics (fortnightly during school terms)
  • Friends at Home (weekly during school terms)
  • Day Camp (one week during selected school holidays)

 

Young adult volunteers may be interested in:

  • Getaways (weekend, usually during school holidays)
  • YAD FC

 

We are also always on the lookout for adult volunteer drivers to help our Friendship Bakery members deliver challah to the community on Fridays.
