This training helps you learn the language and “hidden rules” of our different classes and how to bridge the gaps between them. This Bridges training will open up a new understanding of those in poverty and help you become more effective in offering support. This 2.5 -hour Bridges Out of Poverty training is required for Circles Allies, Circles Staff, and Circles Team Members. Attendance is encouraged for other Circles volunteers too.
We encourage everyone to purchase their own copy of Bridges out of Poverty (we sell them at a discounted price of $20.00 at the training).
The training builds on itself, so the beginning of the training is very important to understanding the rest of the training. Please arrive on time. The building is closed (after hours) during this time so someone will wait at the door to let you in at the beginning of the training.
Please RSVP at least 24 hours before the event begins. If a minimum number of attendees have not registered, the event will be canceled and a notice sent out the morning of the training.
