Bridges Out of Poverty – Kingston
In this one-day intensive training, we will use the lens of economic class to examine variances in societal experience. Topics such as resources, building relationships, the language of economic class, and the hidden rules of economic class will lay a foundation for development of strategies to address poverty and create a more inclusive environment within our agencies and communities we serve.
Participants will receive specific strategies for improving outcomes for people living in poverty. While providing a broad overview of concepts related to the impact of generational poverty in our community, participants will receive specific strategies for improving outcomes for people living in poverty, individuals facing issues related to poverty, and communities impacted by poverty.
This course is being presented by Shelley Smith, a certified Bridges out of Poverty Trainer & Resource Director of the Open Door Mission in Glens Falls, NY.
Due to the cost of books for each participant, there is a $25 fee for the class. Checks should be made payable to “The Open Door” and must be presented upon entry to the workshop.
Lunch and snacks will be provided to all attendees.
