Community Circle


Community Circle LA is returning for its second year to Mar Vista Elementary School! This character building and social-emotional learning curriculum is beneficial to all students. Parent volunteers are needed to ensure that this program reaches every classroom.

If you are interested in:

  • helping students learn problem solving strategies,
  • developing students’ confidence while fostering respect, empathy and friendships,
  • supporting students to share their thoughts, ideas and feelings,
  • leading 20 minute weekly discussion groups.

Learn more about our program by contacting Rishelle Maman and Linda Glaser at We will provide you with the curriculum, weekly training sessions and all the support you need.
