Thursday, August 18, 2011

Boulder County, Colo. – As part of its continued effort to help move individuals and families out of poverty and into a life of sustained self-sufficiency, Boulder County is recruiting volunteers to participate in the Circles Campaign.

What: Volunteer training for the Circles Campaign, a nationwide program dedicated to ending poverty.

When: Wednesday, Aug. 24, 6-8 p.m.

Where: First United Methodist Church, 350 11th Ave., Longmont

RSVP:  Eliberto Mendoza, emendoza@bouldercounty.org or 303-441-1503

The Circles Campaign provides a stable structure for people who are working their way out of poverty to receive guidance and support from mentors – called “allies” – to help them develop skills and access resources needed to work on their long range plans to move toward economic stability.

Circles Allies are asked to make an 18-month commitment, volunteering for 6-12 hours per month including two monthly meetings.

For those wanting to be a part of the campaign but unable to make the Ally time commitment, other volunteers are needed for the program in Longmont, Lafayette and Boulder.

Please contact Eliberto Mendoza at emendoza@bouldercounty.org or 303-441-1503 for more information.
