Understanding the impact and issues related to poverty in our city is essential to effective employment, service, and transformation.

We invite you to be trained and equipped in the groundbreaking work of Bridges Out of Poverty and its ongoing impact in our region.

In this two-day training, participants will create a mental model of poverty, 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. The seminar puts into words what many veteran professionals and community members have experienced. Throughout this training, 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. While providing a broad overview of concepts related to the impact of generational poverty in our community, participants will receive specific strategies for improving outcomes for people living in poverty, employees facing issues related to poverty, and communities impacted by poverty. 

 

Bridges Out of Poverty 2-Day Intensive Training is facilitated by a multi-faceted team of experts from a variety of organizations and backgrounds.  All are nationally certified Bridges Out of Poverty facilitators.
