Become a Circles Ally — Help families work their way out of poverty

Volunteer training session Saturday, June 2 in Boulder

Boulder County, Colo. - If you are looking for an opportunity to make a lasting difference in your community, the Boulder County Circles campaign is seeking volunteers to help families work their way out of poverty. Circles is a proven program that helps end poverty -- one family at a time -- by focusing on doing things “with” not “for” those in need.

Circles volunteers (called Allies) work directly with the head of a family to help them develop the skills necessary to move out of poverty permanently. A training session for new Allies will take place on Saturday, June 2 in Boulder.

What: Circles Ally Training Session
When: Saturday, June 2, 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Where: Boulder County Sundquist Building, 3482 N. Broadway, Boulder

Becoming an Ally to help mentor and support Circles participants requires about five hours of your time each month, with an 18-month commitment. Most of the volunteer time takes place on Wednesday evenings. Training and support is provided. For more information and to register for the session, contact Marnita
Rodriguez at 303-441-1503, or circlesinfo@bouldercounty.org
