Friends Festival

A fundraising event for kids filled with fall activities; carnival style games, sack races, a costume contest, family portraits and more!

Please support Friend of the Children Tampa Bay and get into the fall spirit by attending our Friends Festival!

Friends of the Children is a non-profit in Tampa Bay that is distinct, courageous and proven. Our chapter is one of 24 chapters across the country; we are compiled of 55 youth and 7 paid mentors, or Friends, that work with each child a minimum of 16 hours/month over the course of 12+ years, from kindergarten through high school graduation.

We have redefined the youth mentoring field by creating the first and only long-term professional mentoring program in the country. Our Friends are experts in building sustained and nurturing relationships with youth who have faced a lot of adversity. We have the data to show that it's real and that it works.
