Workshop Facilitators utilize training to direct participants through provided content during workshops. Volunteers would train to facilitate Getting Ahead or Bridges out of Poverty workshops. Both workshops offer a combination of education and dialogue.
Getting Ahead is a 13-session workshop designed to help adults living in poverty build their own path to a good-paying job, stable housing, and the ability to save for a rainy day. Participants are treated as the experts on their own lives, rather than expected to passively soak up information professionals deem as necessary for improvement.
Bridges out of Poverty is a one-day workshop offered to agencies, educators, community leaders, businesses and employers. The purpose of the seminar is to give community leaders from all sectors a new lens through which they can view themselves, their clients, and the community. They can then begin to make changes that incorporate ideas to improve relationships and outcomes.
Volunteers must pass a background check and sign a confidentiality agreement.
