Presidents
Every year Friendship Circle elects presidents. Presidents have many roles including being a role model for the kids and other volunteers.Meetings are held twice a month and focus on the different disabilities volunteers encounter while volunteering at the Friendship circle and how best to work with these children. Being a President also means recruiting new volunteers from your school and encouraging the old ones. Presidents are involved in planning and executing special events such as the Wake-A-Thon and [email protected] Specialty Programs. In addition Presidents are encouraged to give ideas on how to better and improve our programs and functions.
