A New Name for The Girls Circle Association

August 4, 2009 at 10:18 pm Leave a comment

As most of you know, the Girls Circle Association no longer solely provides programing for girls.  In addition to the the gender-specific Girls Circle program, we launched The Council for Boys & Young Men (formerly called Boys Council) back in 2007.  Then in April of this year GCA released the Mother-Daughter Circle program. In the next few years we plan to develop adult gender-specific programming and will continue to expand the curricula and trainings that we offer for The Council, Girls Circle and Mother-Daughter Circle programs.

With the broadening of our mission it became clear that the overarching business name, Girls Circle Association, no longer represented the full spectrum of the work that we do.

To better reflect our purpose as an organization, The Girls Circle Association is changing its name to One Circle Foundation.

OCF Logo - colorWith this new name comes a new website which will launch by the end of September, http://onecirclefoundation.org/. The new website will include an interactive community section with opportunities for networking, resources for raising funds, new videos, pictures and audio clips as well a huge pool of other resources for adults and kids in all walks of life.

It comes with excitement, anticipation and a little sadness that we say goodbye to the organizational name, Girls Circle Association.  The name shows our roots; a non-profit that developed in order provide a gender-specific program that meets teen girls where they are at and provides a safe space for them to grow.  Now our organization has moved into a new phase where we strive not only to provide that space for girls, but for all members of the world community.

We would love to hear your thoughts on the new name and direction for the One Circle Foundation (formerly Girls Circle Association).   Additionally, If you have any ideas for what you’d like to see on our upcoming website we would love to hear them.  Our goal with the website is to meet the needs of the community.

Thank you for your continued support!
