In 2015 PassageWorks Institute became the proud fiscal sponsor of CircleTalk, a non-profit organization based in Boulder, Colorado. CircleTalk programs are inspired by the principles and practices of Passageworks’ curricula, which Deborah Skovron customized and field-tested at the Institute beginning in 2010. CircleTalk is a tool to reduce isolation of seniors as they move from lives of doing to being and can be offered anywhere seniors gather. This is accomplished by engaging members of circle communities in meaningful conversations and personal sharing. CircleTalk uses creative activities to build social connections, inspire a sense of belonging, and create small communities where there were none. The CircleTalk Method and curriculum have been field-tested and demonstrated for over 600 hours and have been enthusiastically received and adopted in the senior industry.
