Please join us as we welcome Prudence Pease, a national facilitator with Aha Process!, for a full day Bridges Out of Poverty workshop for the entire community.
8:00 am – 3:30 pm (includes lunch)
Zion Lutheran Church
74 First Street, Pittsfield, MA
This workshop is a comprehensive approach to understanding 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.
Who is this workshop for?
Everyone! Executives, business leaders, non-profit managers, frontline staff, government employees, and community leaders who want to make Pittsfield a just, thriving, and safe place for all.
Space is limited, so please register early. Transportation provided within City of Pittsfield upon request.
