HANGOUT WITH FRIENDS!

For Ages 13+

What is Wings of Friendship?

Wings of Friendship is a virtual, social gathering of friends with physical or neurological differences. The purpose is to foster dialogue, develop friendships and deepen connections. We will gather through Zoom, an online platform, with opportunities to engage in meaningful group discussion, dig deeper into our commonalities and form one-on-one friendships.

Why Participate?

We are all connected through our shared humanity. In this time of isolation as the world faces the threat of COVID-19, friendship is more important than ever.

Individuals with disabilities are often excluded in society. As many of us throughout the world must remain physically distant from others, feelings of loneliness and separation have been amplified. In this uniquely troubling situation, we are all in this together.

Just like silk woven into a butterfly’s cocoon, we will weave the threads of meaningful friendships between humans of all physical and neurological abilities from all places. By connecting with one another, we will collectively emerge from this dark place anew, spreading our wings virtually to spaces beyond our imagination.

How to Participate?

  • Sign up at thefriendshipjourney.org
  • Once we receive your registration, we will email a link along with information regarding how to join the weekly gathering. You will need a laptop or tablet to participate.
  • Each week, all friends will meet online as a collective group led by Dylan’s Wings of Change & The Friendship Journey. There will be opportunities for the group to learn and share with one another as well as break-out rooms where we hold discussions in small groups.
  • You and your friends can coordinate to meet virtually as often as you’d like!
  • Witness the butterfly effect in action. As these friendships and connections grow, we can change the world together.
