Whether you are a business owner, teacher, volunteer, law enforcement professional, minister or anyone in between. Bridges will prepare you to become more effective working with people operating in the survival mode of poverty. 

Workshop provides the framework for understanding the dynamics that cause and maintain poverty from an individual, to a systemic level.
