Our Flagship Program
When we first developed our program for disabled adults at Friends University, we called it Friendship Fields. Now we have more than one program branching out from Friendship Fields, but we still think this original option is pretty special.
Friendship Fields Fun students participate on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the school year and follow a curriculum that focuses on life skills, people skills, and social interaction with college students. They also interact regularly with other Friends University student volunteers, including many of the athletic teams. College-type activities include visiting practices and athletic games, hanging out and playing games with student athletes, having dinner in the student dining hall with Friends students and attending an occasional school dance, among many others. The Friendship Fields Fun program is not only helping special needs students with their desire to experience college life; it is transforming Friends.
