Are you sick of living in poverty?
Community Action Circles is a new program that will give you the tools you need to escape the grasps of poverty, while learning to be an active member of your community to help others do the same.
If you are struggling with poverty and want a way out, know that you do not have to do it alone.
Community Action Circles is a two part program. Participants begin the first part by attending 12 weekly classes that teach self-reliance, analytical thinking and problem solving skills. Upon completion, participants graduate from the program and enter into the second part of the program.
For the next 18 months, participants are paired with individuals (Allies) from different economic classes to create intentional friendships. These friendships serve as a foundation to address and solve the barriers preventing you from overcoming poverty. This provides an opportunity for you to meet new people and develop friendships that will help strengthen your ability to be a leader in the community.
If you are willing to take action and put forth effort, Circles can and will allow you to rise above poverty.
