Circle of Friends

January 2018

“Circle of Friends” is a program that was created to foster an environment in which all students – with and without disabilities – have opportunities to build rewarding friendships. Northfield High School student volunteers are paired with high school students on the autism spectrum and, together, they attend social events.  Circle of Friends works to create a strong connection for students to their community and the individuals that make up the community.
