Life Inside COF

A Message from Teacher

I have noticed that there is beauty in every corner of life. Maybe it is due to my age or may because I learned to appreciate life more. To me, there is nothing more beautiful than watching an individual doing his/her best in whatever task one has chosen or given to do and enjoying it.

I see a beauty in you, the student volunteers, who come every Monday to be with the buddies. While it is true that you had to do community service, you chose to be at COF. It is not easy to give up your Monday afternoon to work with challenging individuals. I appreciate the extra effort you put in to ensure that your buddy gets that stretching completed when we are exercising.

Memories of 2009

Year 2009 is my personal best since I have already spent two years in Circle of Friends (COF). Many things have happened and have passed really quickly, but I can still remember most of events that occurred in COF.

I showed my passion, spent my time and love, which I think still think are not enough, and I really enjoyed meeting with our buddies every Monday. I am sure that the times that I have spent in COF are the most joyful days of my 17 years of life.

Circle of Friends (COF) is a non-profit organization that encourages kids with disabilities and high school volunteers get together and build friendships.

Special buddies usually are protected under their parents’ care and are shielded from society, never getting a chance to interact with other kids.
