A circle is a safe place to talk about things that you are thinking about in your own life.
A circle is a place to have fun while learning to explore and understand yourself and others.
A circle is a place to make friends.
A circle is a place for you to listen to others speak about things going on in your life. You will learn about confidentiality and how this contributes to making the circle a safe place for this kind of sharing. The circle is a place where the skills of listening, witnessing, sharing and supporting each other are modeled and taught.
Two Mentors are trained to guide your circle. The Mentors are trained to create the context for the circles but you and other circle members determine what you would like to do in the circle. What topics are of interest? What activities do you want to do together? Speak up, and your mentors will listen.
Would you like to be part of a circle that meets at your school, or a community circle that meets on the weekends or after school? We offer circles for youth ages 10-24.
Circles are currently active in Medford, Phoenix, Talent, and Ashland. New circles are forming all the time.
If you want to join a circle, contact us and we’ll be in touch about current opportunities.
