BRIDGES OUT OF POVERTY
bridges-program

Bridges Out of Poverty (BOP) offers us a framework for understanding the complicated topic of economic poverty in a safe space with others. 

BOP helps communities develop a common language as we explore the difficult realities many of our neighbors face. 

During the workshop, we will create a mental model of local poverty, examine some of the history that got us here, investigate the causes of poverty, review additional resources, and consider some potential solutions.

BOP is not about changing our neighbor’s behaviors or ways of thinking.  This workshop is about us.  It is about recognizing our own notions about poverty, how we might need to adjust our lens, and what ways we can envision together to alter the status quo.  I hope you consider joining us for a Bridges workshop and might find your own Aha! Moment.
