Event description

Description

Bridges Out of Poverty is considered a starting point towards a shared community-wide perspective about defining and working towards ending poverty. The workshops are designed to educate community members from middle and upper socio-economic groups on the societal factors that influence and sustain poverty and the experiences of living in poverty and barriers low-income individuals face to moving out of poverty.

In each 3 hour workshop participants will:

  • examine the impacts of poverty on families
  • explore the hidden rules of poverty
  • gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and strengths of people living in poverty
  • explore how access to resources impacts the way we see the world
  • engage in self-reflection and group exercises to further explore the concepts covered in the workshop
  • earn the necessary prerequisite for future involvement with the Circles program

We recommend these introductory sessions for community leaders, practitioners, case managers, and policy makers from:

  • community organizations
  • law enforcement
  • counselling services
  • employment agencies
  • health care professionals
  • faith communities
  • social service providers

Parking is available onsite but limited. We encourage you to carpool if possible.
