Think your employees or clients could benefit from Circles' support systems? Let's collaborate!
Ally

An Ally supports someone in achieving their goals and improving their life. Allies walk alongside individuals who work hard but continue to hit barriers to getting ahead. With guidance from staff and seasoned Allies, you'll support someone as they work to create their future story. Allies offer a listening ear, celebrate successes, and encourage finding new ways to solve problems and envision new possibilities. 

Ad-Hoc Ally



Similar to Allies, an Ad-Hoc Ally supports someone as they step into their future story, however an Ad-Hoc Ally focuses in on one goal area and acts as an adviser, providing gentle guidance within a specific expertise. 
Areas of expertise can include, but are not limited to: 
      Budgeting 
      Obtaining a driver's license 
      Home-ownership 
      Starting a small business
      Applying for jobs 

Kids Corner Teacher



Our Kids Corner volunteers provide families the opportunity to participate in Circles. Many single parents do not have alternative childcare options. So, while parents work hard in Circles on their employment and financial goals, the kids get to have fun! Kids Corner Teachers work as a team to provide a safe, consistent and fun environment for the Circles kids.
