Bridges For Allies
Saturday May19, 2018 9 am - 4 pm Register here for 5/19/2018 Bridges for Allies
This workshop provides a framework for understanding the dynamics that cause and maintain poverty from the individual to the systemic level. Topics include a mental model of social class, four main areas of research, understanding of the hidden roles of poverty, resources necessary to change, and how language and family structure works in social classes. This abbreviated version of our 14 hour Bridges Out of Poverty Day 1 & 2 has a particular focus on orientating volunteers from middle class and contains components of both Day 1 & 2 workshops plus a presentation of our Advocates for Change program. This workshop increases our awareness and provides a framework to become more effective in removing barriers and individuals on the journey to self-sufficiency and how new friends from Middle Class can join them in their journey.
