Circles are facilitated face-to-face meetings in a circle format. This format is adopted from Native American tradition and proven to build relationships and trust between diverse groups. As a result of these processes, challenges, conflicts or potential biases are uncovered and replaced with greater understanding and connection among participants.
Circle Up offers facilitation of Circles and training on conducting them.
Educator-Student Circles and Police-Youth Circles are specialty Circles offered by Circle Up.
These 3-5 hour programs are held with 8 to 12 youth and a similar number of educators and/or law enforcement participants.
