An Important Message from the Founders (plus video!)

Dear Friends of Girls Circle and Council for Boys,

We are reaching out to our community with an update and important request for your support. Please view our 2 minute video message and help us reach our fund-raising goal by December 1st. Donate here today

We want to acknowledge so many of you that have helped expand our mission by implementing the Girls Circles – and more recently the Councils for Boys and Young Men – empowering communities of caring that have touched the lives of countless youth nationally and around the world.

Together, we have responded to adolescents’ essential and urgent need for belonging and we have all witnessed the social change and the shifts in organizational culture that have improved the overall quality of services from the local yoga studio, to the Girls Scout troop, to the after school program, to the Boys & Girls Club, to the group home….to the facilities and treatment centers that house youth in the juvenile justice system.

Now, for the first time in our organization’s history, we need to ask for your financial support. With the current economic situation, and government grants and funding dwindling, we are reaching out to you to help us to continue to be able to respond to the demand related to providing essential training and technical assistance, professional development, support, and quality manualized curricula.

We know that by working together to provide caring communities and safe places for youth, we can continue to create change in the world.

If you can, will you please join the effort to help? We are a Project of the Tides Center, a 501(3)(c) organization and your contribution will build the bridge we need to cross over during these challenging times. We hope you receive this request knowing how dearly we value your friendship and shared commitment to youth and healthy connections.
