Circles Campaign looking for “Allies”
Circles Campaign volunteer training set for Saturday in Boulder
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: Bridges out of Poverty training for those interested in joining the Circles Campaign
When: Saturday, July 21, 9-11 a.m.
Where: Twenty Ninth Street, Community Room, 1710 29th St., Boulder
RSVP: Eliberto Mendoza, email@example.com or 303-441-1503
The training is free and refreshments will be provided, but participants are required to have a copy of the Bridges out of Poverty book, which can be purchased at the training for $15.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-441-1503 for more information.
