Inspiring Work in Minnesota – Video

Twin Cities Public Television broadcast a piece at the end of September called Next Steps: Committing To Community which focuses on restoration and reintegration as it relates to the criminal justice system. Jason Sole is one of the featured child advocates and ex-offenders in the film.  Jason also works for the Girls Circle Association as a Boys Council Trainer.  His voice is a strong addition to this inspiring piece about the work being done for positive change within and around the justice system in Minnesota.


If you’d like to learn more about Jason or contact him directly please visit his personal website here:

Mother Daughter Music

Music soothes the soul, cures the blues, energizes a room and inspires greatness… so it’s important to us at The Girls Circle Association to bring stellar music mixes into our trainings.  Kitty Tyrol, the Senior Training Manager for GCA, has offered to share the play list that she uses when training the Mother-Daughter Facilitator Training.  Is there a song that you’d like to hear at a training?
