Macedonia Life-Skills Center will be implementing One Circle Foundation Models and Best Practices into our programs this year.


One Circle Foundation offers three models: Girls Circle, The Council for Boys and Young Men, and Women’s Circle.


One Circle Foundation programs employ evidence-based principles of a strengths-based approach, motivational interviewing strategies and have a strong focus on positive youth development. The age old process of communing in a safe circle is the foundational strength of all programs.


Girls Circle (Mondays 6 - 8 pm, refreshments served)

A structured support group for girls and gender-expansive youth from 9-18 years which integrates relational theory, resiliency practices, and skills training. Designed to increase positive connection, strengths, and competence in girls. Also offered under the model is Mother-Daughter Circle, for mothers or female caregivers and their daughters.


The Council (Mondays 6 - 8 pm, refreshments served)

A strengths-based group approach to promote boy's and young men’s safe and healthy passage through pre-teen and adolescent years. In this structured environment, boys and young men gain the vital opportunity to address masculine definitions and behaviors and build capacities to find their innate value and create good lives - individually and collectively!


Women's Circle (Mondays 6 - 8 pm, refreshments served)

A support group for women to share, explore, build skills, and encourage one another to live authentically in mind, body, heart and spirit. A program for women in colleges, careers, recovery programs, institutions, job training, military or volunteer service, faith- based settings, homemakers and caregivers.


How it Works

5-10 participants with 1-2 facilitators meet for 1.5 - 2 hour weekly sessions during an "8-12 week period*. Groups are age-appropriate with gender-relevant themes and employ strengths-based facilitation strategies.


One Circle Foundation Facilitator Trainings and Curricula help ensure that these circle models will be implemented successfully, with fidelity and confidence. Adaptable to school and high transition settings.
