Circles of Support and Accountability Training

March 1 - March 2

5:00pm - 4:00pm

Looking for a great volunteer opportunity?

Join THRIVE Communities in their mission to empower adults returning from incarceration and revolutionizing the role community members play in their lives upon reentry.

Day 1: March 1st, 2018 5-9pm
Day 2: March 2nd, 2018 9am-4pm

THRIVE’s 2-day COSA training is an experiential exploration of the meaning, guidelines and impact of Circles. Throughout the course of the day-long training, participants will:

Explore the support and accountability systems of both themselves and prospective Core Members (returning citizens).
Gain understanding of the state-enforced Conditions (rules) that Core Members must follow when released from prison.
Explore the experiences of the victims of prospective Core Members.
Explore and understand program and personal boundaries that support healthy relationships and community wholeness.
Explore the process, challenges and supportive factors of personal change.
Gain understanding and exposure to Circle Meeting process through both film and role plays.
There is no advanced reading or preparation. Facilitators only ask that participants come with a willingness to share, listen and learn together. By the end of the day, participants will have gained an understanding of the roles and responsibilities of a volunteer of THRIVE’s Circle of Support and Accountability initiative.

THRIVE is a startup non-profit that relies on the support of passionate people like you. To ensure all can participate, there are no training fees, we simply ask that participants consider making a gift of $40 to support THRIVE’s mission.

This training is modeled after the Vermont Department of Corrections and Community Justice Center Network of Vermont’s statewide COSA training.
