      Bridges Out of Poverty - Day One Training - Las Vegas - October 29 2019

      Bridges to a Thriving Nevada, an initiative of Opportunity Alliance addresses economic instability by examining the barriers and resources individuals encounter. We do this by facilitating a number of workshops designed to bring businesses, education, health and human services, and justice systems together to ask if everyone in our community is afforded a 'Fair Shot': safe and affordable housing, access to health care and education, a well-paying job and a means to achieve it. Bridges opens up conversations with and between service providers and businesses whose daily work connects them with the lives of people in poverty. Bridges out of Poverty Day One is a thorough and intensive workshop based on the framework set in “Bridges Out of Poverty: Strategies for Professionals and Communities” In Day 1, workshop participants explore a wide range of issues around poverty like the following key points: Schools and businesses operate from middle-class norms not always understood across class and the people most affected by poverty must be included in the creation of an accurate model of poverty. In Bridges Day 2, workshop participants learn how to implement Bridges' constructs and tools in their workplaces and in the community. This will be scheduled at a later date.  The cost for Day One including the book, Bridges Out of Poverty, is $99.00.  If you would like to learn more about the training class, contact Tracy Sherwood, (775) 333-8274 -
