Event description

Description

The purpose of Getting Ahead in a Just Gettin’ By World is to provide people experiencing poverty and a chronic lack of resources with new strategies and thinking to build resources for greater stability, choices, and community participation. Become a certified Getting Ahead facilitator and help under-resourced individuals to:

  • Stabilize and take charge of their lives

  • Complete a self-assessment of their own resources and make plans to build them

  • Develop a series of mental models to examine their own lives and create new future stories

  • Investigate the impact that poverty has had on themselves and their community

  • Use this information to build resources for a better life and community

Facilitator training includes the following topics: philosophy, theory, motivation and incentives, long-term support, mental models, content, process, and practice sessions. Additionally, you will receive:

  • Overview of Getting Ahead

  • Preparation to facilitate Getting Ahead groups

  • Getting Ahead Workbook and accompanying Facilitator’s Guide (the set)

  • Pima County also provides on-going support for Getting Ahead facilitators.

Getting Ahead is being offered in urban and rural areas in 50 states and in varied settings, including drug courts, housing projects, workforce development, healthcare employers, mental health associations, prisons, neighborhoods, schools, colleges, and community and faith-based initiatives.

The $85 fee includes a set of workbooks, snacks, drinks, lunch, and materials.
