Everyone that attends will receive a Free "Bridges Out Of Poverty" Book!
People reaching out to people creating positive relationships which promote growth throughout an entire community - concepts of 'Bridges Out of Poverty'.
The Bridges Out of Poverty program actually started in 1996 and has since been shared world wide as a way to educate people about poverty in a relatable way so people in all classes understand the issues we each face. It is a wonderful presentation and I hope you enjoy it. Also all attendees will receive a Bridges Out of Poverty book for free!
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.
Bridges out of Poverty enables individuals, institutions, and communities to stabilize and grow resources for all, particularly those in poverty. Poverty, middle class and wealth are about more than financial resources. Bridges Out of Poverty helps individuals, businesses, students, and communities build resources for a ore successful sustainable future.
