Bridges Out of Poverty- Part 3: Community Lens

June 9 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm MDT

This workshop is an in-depth extension of the Bridges Out of Poverty workshop and builds strategies to break down poverty’s barriers and embed new constructs. The Individual and Institutional lenses covered in the first two days of Bridges workshops are used as a basis for the third Bridges workshop, which looks at poverty’s barriers through the lens of the community. It is an opportunity for not only information and techniques, but to put the skills we’ve learned into practice and continue the real task of building a Bridges Community. The building blocks of putting the work into action will happen at this session.

Participation in the original Bridges Out of Poverty is strongly recommended, but not required. If you missed previous offerings of Bridges Out of Poverty, you can take an online course. Visit https://www.ahaprocess.com/event/bridges-out-of-poverty-workshop-elubridjrp-2109/ for more information.

Registration is limited!
