Children & Teen Programming

Fun, friendship, and genuine connection for youth (ages 17 & under). You’re welcome to join our Circle!

We’re glad to be an extraordinarily accepting, caring community that offers engaging programs for children and teens, both with and without special needs. Our mission? To build inclusive, genuine friendships.

From weekly Sunday gatherings, to family trips, to social and educational community events, we’re here to make the Philadelphia area more accessible to all, with respect for all of our friends’ needs!
