PARTNERS FOR CHANGE TRI-VALLEY

OUR MISSION

We are a community-based effort to empower people to chart their course out of poverty and toward self-sufficiency by intentionally creating personal relationships that bridge financial class lines.

The Partners community meets regularly on Tuesday nights to build a support system, community, and to do the hard work required to achieve our participants goals for independence, through curriculum that targets financial sustainability and community resources.

Many of our participants have children. Thus, we are looking for adults who would be willing to volunteer their time to watch the children of our participants. Within this capacity, volunteers will support the youth of our program through curriculum and community building targeted at helping the youth to navigate their own future while also building skills for their success.

The ages of our youth span from toddler to teenagers. However, the teens in the group are employed as childcare leaders so that they can gain skills in childcare and build their resumes. Thus, adult volunteers will be supporting our teens as their mentors and allies.

We look forward to working with those committed to ending the cycle of poverty through community building and education.

Mission Statement

We are a community-based effort to empower people to chart their course out of poverty and toward self-sufficiency by intentionally creating personal relationships that bridge financial class lines.

Description

A community-based program that assists Tri-Valley families in achieving financial self-sufficiency. The individual or family is the Change Leader and sets goals for economic improvement. After completing a 14-20-week life skills course entitled Getting Ahead, Change Leaders are partnered with 2-4 volunteer mentors called Allies forming a support system.

The Circle meets regularly to build friendship and do the hard work required to achieve the Change Leader's goals for independence, which typically takes 18-24 months. Once the goal is met, Change Leaders are expected to contribute to the community in a step we refer to as Reciprocity completing the circle with action.
