Bridges Out of Poverty: Applying Bridges Concepts

unitedway portercountyThe United Way of Porter County, in conjunction with the Indiana Nonprofit Resource Network, is hosting an informative workshop on how to reduce poverty in our community.

Bridges Out of Poverty – Day 2 Applying Bridges Concepts will be held on Wednesday, October 17th, 2012 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Ivy Tech Community College (Auditorium) – 3100 Ivy Tech Drive in Valparaiso. Cost is $35.00 per person and includes lunch and materials.

This workshop is an extension of Bridges Out of Poverty – Day 1, and will build upon the concepts of reducing poverty by understanding those experiencing poverty. Participants will learn how to use mental models to communicate effectively, and to assist clients from poverty to learn quickly, explore options, and develop future stories. Participants will also explore the skills of mediation, relationship building, and mentoring. This workshop introduces strategies for changing program designs, policies, and procedures to improve outcomes. Participants will use case studies and an examination of the client's lifecycle as principals of change.
