Since 2001, Student Open Circles has been working with students to support them in their life and spiritual journeys and to make a difference in the community.
Founders, Marybeth Leis and Jeff Druery, have been providing guidance for students since 1995. As they listened to students, they recognized the need for welcoming and respectful spaces for students from a diversity of backgrounds to explore meaning, values, spirituality, and social justice.
We are a Canadian registered charity based in Hamilton, Ontario (registration number 891444309 RR0001).
