Bridges Out of Poverty

Bridges Out Of Poverty is a powerful model for economic and social change and stability.  It helps education, social, health and legal professionals:


Day 1 Training

This training gives participants key lessons in dealing with individuals from poverty.  Participants will learn how to use mental models to communicate effectively, and to assist clients from poverty to learn quickly.  Bridges reaches out to the providers and businesses whose daily work connects them with the lives of people in poverty.  If your business, agency or organization works with people living in poverty, only a deeper understanding of their challenges and strengths will help you partner with them to create opportunities for success.

Day 2 Training

This training is for individuals who have completed Day 1.  Included in this workshop is information regarding resources, creating relationships, mediation, stages of change and motivation and much more.  Anyone who works in any capacity with individuals living in poverty or has an interest in helping others will learn skills and techniques to use by participating in this workshop.
