Resource Teams

CirclesRVA relies on volunteers.  Here are some of the ways you can help by working on a Resource Team:

Ad Hoc Allies

Usually have a special skill or connections with other organisations and are willing to share their skill or connection with a Circle Leader who wants help in that particular area.

Please let us know how you can help

Community Team

Manages space, secures and/or prepares donated meals for meetings, and ensures weekly meetings are welcoming and supportive in nature

Recruitment Team

Promotes Circles in the community, recruits and helps to enroll Circle Leaders, Circle Allies and other volunteers

Service Team

Jobs and Education Team

Develops relationships with local workforce development, job training programs, and education resources that help Circle Leaders achieve their goals and prepare to pursue these pathways
