One Circle Foundation Programs

We are pleased to be able to offer the Boys Council/Girls Circle Programs to groups throughout Colchester County.  If you are interested in having us facilitate, please contact us today.

Girls Circle is for all girls and young women, 9-18 years. The Council for Boys and Young Men is for all boys and young men, 9-18 years. Circles are inclusive and welcoming to all youth.

Girls Circle and The Council reach across cultures, race and ethnicity, across demographics, economics, sexual orientation and identity, and religion. The programs are successful in prevention and intervention programs, yet both are delivered in the same manner.

The Girls Circle model, a structured support group for girls from 9-18 years, integrates relational theory, resiliency practices, and skills training in a specific format designed to increase positive connection, personal and collective strengths, and competence in girls.

The Boys Council is a strengths-based group approach to promote boys’ and young men’s safe and healthy passage through pre-teen and adolescent years. The Council meets a core developmental need in boys for strong, positive relationships. In this structured environment, boys and young men gain the vital opportunity to address masculine definitions and behaviors and build their capacities to find their innate value and create good lives – individually and collectively!


You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to speak warmly of them, they should have behaved better.
