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

Volunteer training session Saturday, Aug. 18 in Boulder

Boulder County, Colo. Looking for an opportunity to make a lasting difference in your community? If so, 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, Aug. 18 in Boulder.
   What: Circles Ally Training Session
   When: Saturday, Aug. 18, 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.
   Where: Boulder County Health Auditorium, Health Admin Building, 
                3450 N. Broadway, Boulder
Do you have about five hours of time each month to become an Ally and help mentor and support Circles participants? Most of the volunteer time takes place on Wednesday evenings, and being an Ally requires an 18-month commitment. 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
