Who We Are 

The East Bay Circle of Men is a men’s fraternal and community service organization formed to support men, teams, families, and community.

We are roughly 70 members cross social, religious, ethnic, financial, sexual orientation and political boundaries. We celebrated our 25th anniversary in March of 2017 with several founding members present.

What to Expect

The East Bay Circle of Men are leaders—men who are reclaiming their power and choosing to live a life of honesty, responsibility and integrity. There are ample opportunities for its members to learn and embody these attributes by taking on greater responsibility, under the mentorship of men who have traveled the same road before. The East Bay Circle of Men is a large group of members who meet bi-monthly, but the real life blood of the circle are the individual teams. They are small groups of 4-8 men who meet regularly, usually weekly. This is where the real in-depth support and growth can happen.

The concept of Service is in the DNA of The East Bay Circle of Men, whether it be working in group community service projects or taking more responsibility within the Circle. Those men who consistently show up with the primary question of ”What can I give?” seem to do really well and thrive. What you get is the satisfaction of working with other men and making a difference.
