The second part of the "Bridges Out of Poverty: Strategies for Professionals and Communities," workshop will take place at the YMCA of Clay County Thursday, Sept. 29.
Anette Lawler and Karen Hinshaw will return to Clay County to present the second art of the workshop.
The first part of the workshop was presented in Clay County in October 2010, and featured training originally developed by Dr. Ruby Payne.
Lawler is the Harrison County Extension Educator while Hinshaw is the Huntington County Extension Educator. Both are certified as trainers for the Bridges Out of Poverty Curriculum.
The second installment will build on foundation skills introduced in Part 1, providing proven, effective tools and insights that assist professionals and administrative staff as they help clients move out of the restrictive circumstances imposed by poverty.
The format of the training is helpful to providers and businesses whose daily work connects them with the lives of people in poverty as well as individuals and groups who are interested in assisting people living in poverty to success.
Cost for the workshop is $10, which includes handouts, lunch and breaks.
The workshop will run from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m.
Reservations are required by Wednesday, Sept. 22, in order to assure availability of workshop materials. Seating will be limited.
