Friendship Circle Young Adults

Welcome to the Friendship Circle NYC family!

Join our vibrant community hub for young adults of all abilities, and enjoy a wide range of weekly programs aimed at facilitating socialization with peers and young adult volunteers. The goal of this program is to give young adults with special needs the opportunity to make friends and hang out outside of the home in a fun, safe and relaxed environment.

Membership is $360* for the year. This provides exclusive access to all our weekly programs and special events happening year round.

*Scholarships are available for those who need, nobody will be turned away due to lack of funds.
