Addressing COVID-19 Concerns at Scheduled Trainings Safety comes first and we at One Circle Foundation want to wish everyone security and health during this difficult time. In partnership with our hosts and community partners, we are currently suspending in-person training events through May, and possibly longer as we learn how this major health event unfolds.
You may still register for any open training you see on the calendar and we will be in communication with you as soon as we are aware of any needed rescheduling.
We are pleased to share with you voices from attendees of the Girls Circle and The Council for Boys and Young Men Facilitator Trainings.
We are improving our older ordering system. Meanwhile, if you encounter errors while registering for trainings or purchasing materials, please call us at (415) 419-5119 and we will gladly place your order by phone. Alternately, you may fax your order to (415) 448-5459. We apologize for any inconvenience.
