The Circles Leader Model is best for individuals who are:
- financially stable yet still within 185% of the federal poverty line
- able to pay your usual bills yet you may be one or two challenges away from real crisis.
Bridging Forward participants in this model start with a three month session of weekly meetings with 10-20 other participants where we learn together and develop strong budgets, self-advocacy skills and career plans, afterwhich participants are matched with volunteer Allies who continue working alongside you to help overcome barriers and enter higher-wage employment. 90-minute Orientations are hosted regularly to learn more about this model and see if it is a good fit.
