What we're about

Transform your life, transform your world.

Bringing people together, face-to-face, to improve ourselves
and the world around us.

Ben Franklin’s classic 13 virtues are used to spark discussion about members’ goals and aspirations — who they want to be, and what they want to contribute to the world.

In 1727 Franklin formed the Junto, a weekly mutual-improvement club made up of individuals with an array of interests and skills. Founding father, master inventor: Benjamin Franklin was also a pioneer of self-improvement.

Now, almost 300 years later, the Ben Franklin Circles are revisiting and redefining these virtues – as tools to enrich our own lives and our communities.
