Journeymen's CIRCLES course is a positive mentoring group for boys featuring weekly in-school group meetups, engaging experiential learning activities, and fun outdoor adventures.
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.
All of our meetups involve utilizing a 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.
Each group meets approximately 1x/week, is capped at 15 students, and will have at least 2 trained adults present at all times.
CIRCLES is currently available to students at Vashon Island Schools with plans to expand into King County and Puget Sound in 2018. If you want to bring CIRCLES into your school, please use this form.
CIRCLES are made available to all students of appropriate grades/ages who identify as male. If initial demand exceeds capacity we may intentionally hold space for certain students based on need and accessibility.
