Getting Ahead in a “just-getting-by” world
Poverty affects us all. Through the lens of economic class, Getting Ahead in a Just-Gettin’-By World is a book and a 45-hour workshop that helps individuals in poverty build their resources for a more prosperous life for themselves, their families and their communities.
- The Getting Ahead curriculum engages people who are living in poverty and provides inspiration and tools for success
- Small groups of 10-12 participants + a facilitator investigate the impact poverty has had on them and their community
- Getting Ahead graduates have access to a mentor during the 15-week class to provide support and guidance
