The powerful Getting Ahead curriculum shares Bridges Out of Poverty concepts directly with people in poverty.

The Getting Ahead curriculum:

• Involves rigorous work done in a safe learning environment with the support of an experienced facilitator and co-facilitator.
• Enables participants, called “investigators,” to examine their own experience of poverty as well as explore issues in the community that impact poverty − banking, housing, jobs, transportation − providing critical information the community can use to take action to end poverty.
• Guides investigators through an assessment of their own resources and how to build those resources as part of their move to self-sufficiency.
• Puts the concepts, tools, and relationships in the hands of people in poverty to make a difference in their own lives and in the life of their community.

Trained facilitators help people develop their own plans for stability throughout their 16-session experience.
You’ll be certified to:
• Facilitate Getting Ahead groups
• Prepare graduates to become certified to facilitate future groups

Help bring valuable relationships and living-wage jobs within reach by directly teaching the hidden rules of economic class. The Getting Ahead process does not provide answers, nor does it make the argument for change. Motivation, insight, and planning come from the participants themselves.
