WHAT IS BRIDGES?
Bridges out of Poverty is research that provides a deeper understanding and common language of the new culture of poverty. It also provides a platform for innovative action and tools for change that can lead to lowering poverty rates. Bridges training provides a deeper understanding of economic class, hidden rules and mental models that exist within each class.
Here's what former attendees have said about attending the workshop:
•"Can't wait to learn more at Day 2 in the future!"
•"Interesting training. What stuck with me is the different ways [different] classes view their mental model, but the one thing most individuals have in common is what is in it for "me," whether it's a person in poverty who asks, 'What's in it for me today?" compared to a person in the middle class, who asks, 'What is in it for me in the future?"; or a person who is wealthy who wonders, 'What else can I have?" There is not much thought on what can we do together as community because everyone tends to be 'me-focused."
•"Alynn does a great job of offering real-life examples pertaining to the material. Great workhop!"
•"Excellent! I would like 'Bridges' training for our entire organization."
•"Great information! We all need to challenge ourselves to inform, and get the business community involved."
•"Very empowering training, videos were very helpful in showing the work in action."
•"This is an excellent presentation-thank you!"
•"Thank you, Food Bank for your efforts to expand Bridges in Lincoln!"
•"Trainer was excellent, can't wait for session #2."
•"Thank you! I really learned a lot and enjoyed the training!"
•"There seem to be many people who have a hard time understanding why people living in poverty behave in a certain way. This training would be an excellent way to help them to be more open-minded."
