Bridges Out of Poverty


Over 1.5 million Pennsylvanians live in poverty.  If you serve individuals and families that live in poverty, this training will help you gain a deeper understanding of generational and societal elements that contribute to the life, and impact of poverty. Participants will engage in a variety of scenario-based exercises to gain insight into what it is like to live in poverty. Additionally, this training will provide strategies to increase outcomes for those experiencing the challenges of poverty.


At the conclusion of this training, participants will:

  • Define poverty;
  • Identify and describe various factors that contribute to poverty;
  • Identify the "hidden rules" of poverty;
  • Recognize patterns in generational poverty; and
  • Develop strategies for building bridges out of poverty.
