The NY Friendship Circle
Based in Dix Hills, NY, The NY Friendship Circle is a 501(c) (3) charity started as a way to bring teens and children with special needs together to form meaningful and lasting friendships. Teen volunteers have helped make the NY Friendship Circle not only a safe place for children of all abilities to be themselves, be accepted and be valued for who they are on the inside, but also a place where everyone can learn new things. The teen volunteers offer friendship, true support and mentorship to those who need it when participating in various classes and activities, promoting an atmosphere of true integration.

Bake Back America/ Joggers for Juniors
Launched by 17-year-old Emma Klein of West Islip, NY, Bake Back America/Joggers for Juniors was created to give children with special needs a platform to give back to individuals and communities especially in times of need. This effort focuses on a warm and supportive environment that empowers these children to feel confident that they too can impact others. The inspiration behind Joggers for Juniors was to connect two very special communities, one with special needs and one faced with life’s hardships to take that jog down the path together.
