When Rabbi Mendy and Leah Levertov started the Friendship Circle of Arizona in 2005, they had three volunteers. Today the organization has more than 100 teen volunteers that work with about 35 children with special needs.  

The Friendship Circle, an international Chabad-Lubavitch program with 79 locations worldwide, offers programs bringing teen volunteers and children with special needs together for activities, friendship and fun. The programs are offered to families of all streams of Judaism regardless of affiliation.
