Getting Ahead: Helping People Create a Plan for Stability
In this webinar, we explore the Getting Ahead model, moving people from crisis to sustainability and becoming problem-solvers. Author and consultant, Phil DeVol will go over how class participants, called “investigators,” examine their own experience of poverty as well as explore issues in the community that impact poverty. You will also learn how facilitators guide “investigators” through an assessment of their own resources and how to build those resources as part of their move to self-sufficiency. Through Getting Ahead, lives are challenged and changed and graduates are provided support from Bridges Out of Poverty collaboratives as they work toward their goals. We also look at the CharityTracker and Getting Ahead partnership to assess and measure “investigator” success.
