Mentor The Future
True mentorship is an act of reciprocity. For grounded adult men with a passion for personal development and a desire to show up for the future generations, becoming a Mentor with Journeymen positively impacts the lives of tomorrow’s leaders as you refine your own authentic gifts. Training is required and all applicants will be screened prior to engaging with youth.
What is CIRCLES?
Journeymen’s CIRCLES course is a positive mentoring group for boys featuring weekly in-school group meetups (inGroups), engaging experiential learning activities, and fun outdoor adventures (xGroups).
In a safe, supportive, and empowering community of their peers, volunteer adult mentors, and trained facilitators, participants explore the 7 CIRCLES themes of Compassion, Integrity, Resiliency, Community, Leadership, Equity & Service as we journey toward healthy adulthood.
All of our meetups use some form of the “talking circle”, during which all participants practice authentic communication, speaking and listening from the heart. In-school CIRCLES meetups are free to attend, and fees for outdoor adventures and off-site trips are sliding scale with fee waivers available for those in need.
CIRCLES are currently offered to self-identified male students at Vashon Island Schools at no cost to the school or students. We will be expanding into King County greater Puget Sound throughout the next few years – if you would like to see CIRCLES offered at your school, please fill out the Interest Form below.
Open Circles give every member of our community the opportunity to directly participate in and experience the power of talking circles. Parents, school staff, youth advocates, community leaders, and those interested in or curious about becoming a mentor are strongly encouraged to attend.
We host Open Circles seasonally and/or at the request of community members. If you feel called to join us in circle, please submit the form below.
