‘Bridges Out of Poverty’ training offered April 1-2

Purdue Extension is again offering "Bridges Out of Poverty" trainings, taught by certified trainers, Karen Hinshaw and Teresa Witkoske, Purdue Extension educators.

The two-day event will be held April 1 and April 2 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Wabash County REMC Community Room, 350 Wedcor Ave., Wabash.

Registration cost includes the book "Bridges Out of Poverty" by Dr. Ruby Payne.

People who have taken Day 1 may choose to attend only Day 2 on April 2.

Attendees will be equipped to redesign programs to better serve their clientele; build skill sets for management to help guide employees; increase the likelihood of moving others from welfare to work.

The sessions are designed for those who currently work with people in poverty, or are considering this line of work.

This training is also appropriate for church members who serve impoverished people locally or abroad on mission trips.
