Bridges Out of Poverty – Strategies for Professionals and Communities
March 6, 2014 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pmFree
This workshop is a comprehensive approach to understanding the dynamics that cause and maintain poverty from the individual to the systemic level. Bridges Out of Poverty uses the lens of economic class and provides concrete tools and strategies for a community to prevent, reduce, and alleviate poverty.
Participants will review poverty research, examine a theory of change, and analyze poverty through the prism of the hidden rules of class, resources, family structure, and language. Throughout the workshop, participants will receive specific strategies for improving outcomes for people living in poverty, but the focus of the workshop is to provide a broad overview of concepts.
This is a FREE training opportunity open to professionals, community members, teachers, students and the like. A continental breakfast and a sandwich lunch will be provided. Act 48 credits will be available for a fee. Additionally, the first 125 individuals per training date to sign in on their respective date will receive a complimentary copy of “Bridges Out of Poverty”.
