Established in 1995, The Friendship Club is a year-around program that serves about 80-100 girls at-risk in sixth through twelfth grades. The girls come from all areas of western Nevada County. The work of The Friendship Club is strongly supported by the local community. Most of the funding comes from individuals and businesses in the area. Over 150 community members volunteer to help The Friendship Club accomplish its mission.
“We are not going to know these girls just through high school, they will be part of our community and a part of our lives forever.”
Bill Riddle, Community Volunteer
