Volunteer as a Circles Ally!

Save to Favorites

SHARE- Circles Greenville County

Circles is a national initiative that seeks to involve our communities in ending the cycle of poverty.

Participants are called Circle Leaders, and volunteers are called Allies. After both groups receive training, two Allies are matched with every Circle Leader. These intentional friendships are the foundation of the Circles model. Circle Leaders set their own goals and volunteers provide them with support and guidance. As an Ally, your job is to listen, ask questions, and make suggestions. You’ll help Circle Leaders use their unique gifts and skills to reach their goals, and Circle Leaders will help you better understand poverty in your community.

LEADERS & ALLIES COMMIT TO

> Building a friendship

> Attending meetings regularly

> Being open to new perspectives

> Being honest

> Trusting the process even when it’s challenging

HOW IT WORKS

> All participants and volunteers receive training

> Circle Leaders set goals, and Allies support Leaders as they meet their goals

> Circle Leaders and Allies gather for weekly large group meetings (minimum twice a month)

> Monthly sessions engage community leaders in the work of poverty reduction

> Most families achieve financial stability around the 18-month mark

> Victories and milestones are celebrated together

> Friendships formed in the group last a lifetime

About SHARE- Circles Greenville County

Location:

254 S. Pleasantburg Drive, Greenville, SC 29607, US

Mission Statement

Circles empowers families to exit poverty by providing them with training, tools, resources, and most importantly relationships, that help them overcome barriers and achieve financial success. Circles reduces poverty! It’s about intentional relationships across income lines. While middle-income and high-income families enjoy networks of support through their jobs, schools, and neighborhoods, families living in poverty rarely develop such contacts. Many who live in poverty are hardworking and motivated, so when a circle of support forms around them, advice is offered, contacts are shared, and the fears that keep people in poverty start to disappear.
