Building the Bridge
Building the Bridge is a 12-module workshop for individuals living in or near poverty, to enable them to build their own path to a good-paying job, stable housing, and the ability to save for a rainy day. Participants are treated as the experts on their own lives, rather than expected to passively soak up information professionals deem necessary for improvement.
A $10 stipend is paid to participants at each session and an additional $50 is awarded upon completion of the program. A simple meal is provided at each session, as well as transportation and childcare as needed. To fill out an Interest Application or download a PDF version of the form, click here.
