The Bridges Out of Poverty workshop provides employers, social service providers and community organizations key lessons in dealing with individuals from poverty, giving staff and volunteers the common language, understanding, and tools to prevent and alleviate poverty. Customer service and teamwork in business and community settings are improved.

Topics include increasing awareness of the differences in economic cultures and how those differences affect opportunities for success:

  • Explore poverty and its causes
  • Discuss the hidden rules of our society as they pertain to poverty
  • Investigate the impact poverty has on individuals, organizations and community

Based on the book Bridges Out of Poverty: Strategies for Professionals and Communities, a collaborative effort of Ruby K. Payne, Phillip DeVol, and Terie Dreussi Smith, this workshop is designed for audiences of employers, community organizations, law enforcement, counselors, health care, and social service providers.
