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.

“A class of Getting Ahead participants ready to work themselves out of poverty has recently graduated, and the campaign is in immediate need of Allies to connect with them,” said Circles Coordinator Eliberto Mendoza.

Circles Allies are asked to make an 18-month commitment, volunteering for 6-12 hours per month including two monthly meetings. For more information being an Ally please visit the Boulder County Circles website at www.BoulderCountyCircles.org and download an Ally job description.

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.
