Bridges Out of Poverty Development Day

This workshop is a comprehensive approach to understanding poverty and generational poverty.  Bridges Out of Poverty uses the lens of economic class and provides concrete tools and strategies for a community to 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, but the focus of the workshop is to provide a broad overview of concepts.

This training assists employers, community organizations, social service agencies, and individuals gain insight and strategies
