The Circles movement has levels of time commitment to fit your schedule – from one evening to 18 months.
ALLIES agree to form an intentional relationship with a Circle Leader working to get out of poverty. Allies commit to attending at least two of the Monday night weekly meetings every month and also to check in with their Circle Leader outside of the weekly meetings. The Ally commitment is for 18 months.
MEALS are provided at no cost to everyone attending weekly meetings. Provide or fund a meal, or join our Meals and Hospitality Team to secure, coordinate, prepare, serve, or fund weekly meals for 55 persons.
CHILDCARE is provided weekly at no cost to all Circle Leaders. Circles' children and youth curriculum uses a developmental approach and is designed to interrupt the poverty cycle for future generations. Child care givers are required to pass a background check.
RESOURCE TEAMS are the volunteer engines that power the Circles program. Guided and supported by Staff, Resource Team members help maintain and drive the process. Small, flexible, and responsive, each Team consists of 3-4 members. Monthly time commitment can vary between 3 - 10 hours/month depending on team and current project.
