Getting AHEAD in a Just-Gettin’-By World is an innovative workshop series that is built from the “Bridges Out of Poverty” framework. Getting AHEAD in a Just-Getting-by-World is a 4 week -10 Module workshop initiative to assist clients in their employment-readiness program. It is a facilitated process of discovery where information, concepts, and analytical tools are shared with participants to explore the impact of poverty in their lives and the dynamics of economic class. Some people are looking for a way out, getting unstuck, starting over, and changing their lives. The program is to increase all of our client resources, build confidence, increase prospects for sustainable employment and to gain support from others who are on a similar path. Our clients will be taking advantage of an opportunity that can lead to personal growth and increased stability in their lives. The most powerful shift for participants is increased motivation and self-efficacy as they move forward with their future plan.
