In partnership with Community Action Wayne Medina, we are hosting a half-day session of Bridges Out of Poverty. Bridges out of Poverty is a framework for understanding different socioeconomic status'. Instructors, Cassie and Olufemmi from CAWM will help participants explore poverty, middle class and wealth along with the various facets that define them. This half-day workshop will focus on:

  • Individual, community and institutional views of people in poverty
  • Dissecting the causation of poverty
  • Brain functions of people who live in extreme poverty
  • Trauma Informed Care and Motivational Interview tactics
  • The hidden rules of class
  • Collaborative approaches to deconstructing silos

This program is perfect for teachers, nurses, first responders and anyone who is in a service oriented position.

Cost $15.00 per person, this includes lunch. Call 330-263-6363 to register. The first 10 people to register will get a free copy of the book Bridges Out of Poverty by Dr. Ruby Payne.
