Our mission is to demonstrate the art of sustainable living and learning, while unifying people for the restoration of our planet. We help youth ignite their passions by offering service-based projects that awaken our hearts and ensure a thriving earth for future generations.
Our organization is based at Triangle Lake in rural Oregon, close to Eugene, on 60 acres of land that was donated to Circle of Children in 2012. Our organization’s primary focus is empowering youth through nature connection and experiential education programs. For more information on who we are and what we do, please be sure to visit our website.
Circle of Children is currently launching our newest project, GEM: Global Empowerment Mandala.
GEM is designed to unify young people and support their creative brilliance by providing the tools, guidance and resources they require to take their solutions for peace and make them a reality. One of the tools through which we do this is a social media platform that makes it inspiring and easy for young people to get involved. This virtual hub will be a space dedicated to sharing resources and expressing our unique gifts in service to a collective vision for peace and positive change.
We are inviting youth (ages 12-24), community mentors, schools, non-profit organizations and eco-conscious companies to join GEM’s philanthropic community network. Everyone who joins will be invited to support youth members by offering resources, mentorship, volunteer opportunities and any other gifts they find it within their hearts to provide. This ensures that young people who join the network will receive an abundance of opportunities and resources to support them as they set out to create positive change in their local and global community.
