Circles Coach (part-time)
Are you committed to ending poverty and homelessness? Do you believe everyone deserves the tools, training, and support to exit the cycle of poverty? Then consider joining the team at Good Samaritan Ministries!
Good Sam’s Circles program is looking for a new Coach.

Circles encourages program participants to overcome internal and external barriers to pursue their goals and offers volunteers a chance to engage in authentic relationships with their neighbors while increasing their own cultural competency and “poverty IQ.”
A successful candidate will be personable, organized, able to implement group programming, work one-on-one with program participants, lead volunteer engagement, and participate in collaborative initiatives with other Holland organizations.
Please send a cover letter and resume to Lotefa Bartlett de Villarreal (LVillarreal@GoodSamMinistries.com).
