Coming Soon: in February 2022 – Bridges Out of Poverty Workshop

January 26 @ 5:08 pm


Coming in February 2022 – Check back to confirm date, time and to confirm your spot!

Bridges Peterborough offers Bridges out of Poverty workshops & orientations to community groups, churches, social service organizations and as a part of becoming involved with Bridging Teams.

Government, education, correctional and social service institutions are overwhelmed by the increasing needs of people living in poverty.

Bridges Out of Poverty is a highly successful citizen-led initiative being used by 370 communities across North America and overseas.

Bridges Peterborough is excited to be part of the Peterborough-wide Bridges Out of Poverty strategy, a growing network of organizations and individuals working to bridge the poverty gap in our community.

We’ll learn about:

  • Underlying causes of poverty
  • Hidden rules of class
  • 11 Essential Resources for a stable life
  • …and more!

This invaluable 2-day workshop will challenge your understanding and misunderstanding of poverty, economic class and community sustainability.

It will empower you with essential resources and innovative strategies to transform your community and build bridges out of poverty.
