What is a Circle Leader?

A Circle Leader is a hard working but low-income member of the community who is motivated to change their life. They are called “Leaders” because they are responsible for deciding their own goals and for taking steps toward achieving them.

Common goals include:

  • Getting a job
  • Securing reliable transportation to get to work
  • Learning how to get promoted at work
  • Starting a business
  • Finding better housing
  • Budgeting and/or saving
  • Getting a driver’s license
  • Going back to school

The best Allies are:

  • Positive
  • Patient
  • Good Listeners
  • Willing to learn about the struggles facing low-income families
