With financial support from the Androscoggin United Way and a valued partnership with "Science Through Cooking" for lunch, Community Concepts will be hosting a two-day Bridges Out of Poverty workshop on December 15th & 16th from 8:30-3:30 each day in Auburn Maine.
Bridges Out of Poverty uses the lens of economic class and provides concrete tools and strategies for a community to prevent, reduce, and alleviate poverty.
Bridges Out of Poverty helps communities:
Move individuals from poverty to self-sufficiency
Reduce social costs related to crime, poor health, and welfare
Strengthen educational attainment and job skills
Enhance economic development
Improve on-the-job productivity
Build sustainable communities where everyone can live well.
Prudence Pease will be joining us to guide us through these workshops. Prudence is a certified Bridges Out of Poverty facilitator and has trained more than 5,000 individuals in Bridges work, including human service providers, HR professionals, and employers. Her personal story of growth and change as she traveled the road from welfare mom to judicial officer is extremely compelling and demonstrates beautifully the messages of Bridges Out of Poverty.
