Circles of Opelika looking for program mentors


Special to the
Opelika Observer

Circles of Opelika now has three training sessions successfully completed.
With the program underway and the level of success they have experienced, the organization has an immediate need for “allies” or “mentors.”
Allies are middle to upper class individuals that are willing and able to commit to creating an “intentional friendship” with a family or individual in poverty that lives, works or worships in Opelika. There are no monetary obligations to participating in Circles, only a commitment of time! Allies are required to participate in two training sessions and after being matched with a circle leader and they are expected to attend the weekly Tuesday night meetings.
On June 21, Circles of Opelika will host their first lunch and learn at the Southside Center for the Arts to hear more about how the organization works. To RSVP, contact Director Regina Meadows by calling 334-203-1860 or email at The venue is located at 1103 Glenn St.
