Are you looking to befriend and work closely with a person in need? If so, becoming an Ally might be the perfect opportunity for you. At Circles, we value friendship and community and recognize that our Circle Leaders (the participants working to leave poverty behind) need a friend and constant support system. Fighting poverty is not easy to do alone, Circle Leaders need a friend and ally. They need someone like you! As an Ally, you will be there to support, encourage, and work with our Circle Leaders as they work on their goals towards financial stability.

You might be thinking, "this sounds great, but what if I don’t have the proper training and background?" Well, that is perfectly okay! At Circles, we provide our volunteers with training before stepping into their roles. Our Allies will specifically receive education on being culturally sensitive and training from Bridges Out of Poverty. This education is to give our Allies a toolbox of skills to use in future relationships with our families.

As an Ally we ask that you commit to attending weekly meetings on the 1st and 3rd Thursday, be an ally for at least 6 months, pass a background check, attend training and most importantly, build and strengthen relationships in the Circles Community.

Come join us Today and be a Circles Ally!!
