Welcome to the East Bay Circle of Men

Statement of Non-Discrimination

The East Bay Circle of Men does not discriminate in membership or in any of its activities on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, age, religion or religious creed, disability or handicap, or sexual orientation.

These are our Four Agreements

  1. I will be on time to East Bay Circle of Men functions.
  2. I will attend or actively support and be represented at each East Bay Circle of Men Fall Event.  The Fall Event is our only “members only” gathering. You are expected to make every effort to attend. A big part of the Fall Event is the initiation of new members—a great process of us getting to know you and vice-versa. The Fall Event is always on the 2nd weekend of September.
  3. I will participate in at least one East Bay Circle of Men-related community service event per year.  Part of our wholeness is community service, and there will be many opportunities throughout the year. East Bay Boxing Association, Thunder Road, The Young Men’s Ultimate Weekend, Boy to Men, Taste of the Bay, and Rebuilding Together, and many of our own events are a few places we put our energy.
  4. New members will be on an East Bay Circle of Men team for at least three months.  Men’s teams are the bedrock of the East Bay Circle of Men. We have nine active teams at present. Our expectation is that in the first three months after you join East Bay Circle of Men, you will attend a team meeting once a week so that you have the support you need to really understand who you are and why you are here.

Every man who joins brings something unique to the group. You may not know what that is right now. But if you show up, you will change the East Bay Circle of Men, and the East Bay Circle of Men will change you. There’s nothing else like it, that’s for sure!
