High School Students Team Up With the Friendship Circle for "Warriors & Friends Day Celebration" on December 24

We are proud to announce a new joint initiative between the Hebrew Academy and Friendship Circle communities: Warriors & Friends Day will be a celebration of camaraderie, inclusion, and fun scheduled for December 24, 2018.  

Friendship Circle of Miami Beach & North Dade (see fcmiami.org  for more info) is a social and recreational program, connecting young adult volunteers with children and teens with special needs. Together, they participate in various activities; from sports, to challah baking, to yoga, to movie nights out.
 
Hebrew Academy has long been one of Friendship Circle's greatest partners; they value the many dedicated student volunteers who are imbued with the importance of chesed from Hebrew Academy's environment. On December 24th, they will be hosting a "Friendship Circle Day" on campus, where many of the students will be paired with a Friendship Circle participant to enjoy activities together (think sports and an awesome drum circle assembly). Friendship Circle staff will be facilitating a training beforehand so the students feel well prepared and are able to optimize this experience, and they will have ample support and therapeutic staff on board as well to guide the programming. While the entire high school and eighth grade will be taking part in this training, due to scheduling and timing constraints, unfortunately not every student will be able to take part in Friendship Circle Day on the 24th. However, the Friendship Circle hopes that this is just the first of many collaborative events together and that each student will get a chance to participate in a future event.
