Home > Local Events > Message from Our New Study Circle Coordinators

Hello San Francisco!

Justin and Caitlin Braithwaite are the new Study Circle Coordinators for NC-19! They will be focusing on the institute process within our cluster and learning about how to grow and expand it. If you plan to start a Ruhi Study Circle, or would like to tutor but don’t have a group, please reach out and we can work with you! You can email us at [email protected]

Study Circle Forms

For those friends who are currently tutoring, or are planning to start a study circle, in order for our region to have up to date information, we are asked to fill out a specific form both at the beginning and at the end of a Study Circle. If you need this form or would like to submit one, please email it to [email protected]

Message to Children’s Class Teachers

Attention all Children’s Class Teachers! Our Regional Council is now verifying all volunteers working with minors. If you are currently teaching a children’s class or are interested in being a Children’s Class Teacher, please email the Study Circle Coordinators letting them know, so they can send your name to the Regional Council who will, in turn, begin the process of background checking you. 

Why get background checked? This is becoming a more regular step towards being a volunteer in our society, and ensures the safety of both you as the volunteer and the Institutes’ ability to progress our community and society closer to Bahá’u’lláh’s vision of a new World Order. 

Here are two documents from the National Spiritual Assembly about working with minors:
