Join Our Civic Circle Discussion Series!

Spark the Change Colorado will host our first Points of Light Civic Circle Discussion Series. Participants of this series will come together once a month for 90 minutes, starting in August 2021 through June 2022. To better serve the entire state of Colorado, this cohort will meet virtually. In each session, we will take a deep dive into one of the nine elements of the Civic Circle using toolkits provided by Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service. At the end of our series, each participant will have completed action plans and tools to continue positive work around inclusivity and diversity in our workplaces, homes, and communities. Registration is required and spots are very limited. Participation in this program is free.

Before joining this cohort, please see the expectations outlined below before registering: 

  • Attendance for all sessions is expected.
  • Expect to spend 2-3 hours of pre-work for each session, including reading the magazine. We will explore the Points of Light magazine in addition to other resources to have meaningful and engaging conversation. (Note: Total hours of commitment including the meetings is up to 6 hours per month)
  • This is a learning space! We’re working toward a shared understanding of the Civic Circle framework and its possibilities – not toward immediate expertise – so we invite everyone to practice patience and give yourself grace as we learn together! 
  • This is a BRAVE space, not a safe space.  Know that we are not here to solve–but to LEARN. Keep an open mind.  Prepare to challenge and be challenged respectfully.  

Participants are required to attend all of the following dates, as well as complete independent assignments:

The Civic Circle helps individuals connect to opportunities and understand that doing good comes in many forms. It is a framework of nine elements that represent your power to lead, lend support and take action for causes you care about and to lead a civic life.
