$75 – includes workshop, lunch, & materials, including Ruby Payne’s  “Bridges out of Poverty” book.

CEU credits available.

Led by internationally-known speaker, Jodi Pfarr, this day-long workshop assists employers, community organizations, social service agencies, and individuals to understand the dynamics that cause and maintain poverty.

You will

  • gain insights, concrete tools and strategies on how to prevent, reduce, or alleviate poverty in your community
  • review poverty research and examine a theory of change
  • analyze poverty through the hidden rules of class, resources, family structure, and language.

Jodi Pfarr consults with cities, counties, law enforcement, churches, schools, social service agencies and nonprofits.   She grew up in rural poverty and lives in an urban area, giving her a keen understanding of the demographics, diversity, and unique dynamics within both. She’ll share stories “from the trenches”, in an interactive, entertaining, and highly engaging manner.
