Our mission is to support, engage and empower youth through mentoring.

For over a decade The Rose Circle Mentoring Network has served thousands of youth and trained hundreds of mentors throughout Jackson County. We partner with local agencies, schools and organizations such as Armadillo Technical Institute, Ashland High School, Boys and Girls Clubs, Central Medford High, Options, Talent Middle School and Children’s Advocacy Center and more.  We offer  mentor circles (community and school based) in a group setting as well as one-to-one mentoring for youth from age 10 to 24.

“For me, the Rose Circle was a space to explore friendship, creativity, and the experience of growing into myself as a woman in a safe and enjoyable environment.”
Dana Greenblatt, Girls Circle Mentee
“When boys can find their way to a non-judgmental, supportive group where emotional truth is shared, there is enormous healing power available. They also find a place to celebrate their joys and successes.”
Alan Gale, Boys Circle Mentor
“The Rose Circle helped me build up confidence as a young mom, a student, and figuring out the world of adulthood all at once. I feel better about myself, am more confident in social situations, and know that there are people I can turn to when I need support. It has truly changed my life.”
Reilly McComb, Young Mothers Circle Mentee
“I felt honored to listen to the challenges the girls faced, and was repeatedly amazed at their resilience as they gained more ease and comfort in talking about important issues in their lives. The Rose Circle is a wonderful vehicle to help that happen.”
Alex Mendelsohn, Girls Circle Mentor
