Circles of Hope soon will graduate a new Getting Ahead class.
Graduates who continue as Circle leaders will be matched with allies from the community.
For 18 months, Circle leaders will meet with their allies on a regular basis to implement their plans for moving out of poverty.
There is a free, one-day ally training session from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at First United Methodist Church, 801 N. Main St.
Participants are not obligated to become allies.
To find out more, call 284-0000, stop by Peace Connections at 612 Main St.
For those who can’t attend this weekend’s training, there will be another opportunity from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 20 at the church.
