Bridges Out of Poverty Training Still Open for December

The Bridges Out of Poverty Training seminar to be held in December is looking to fill two open slots in its training.

The seminar offers a platform to empower both staff and volunteers with vocabulary and practical tools to confront and eliminate poverty. By diving into the impact of economic class on one’s life experiences, participants gain an awareness crucial for creating enhanced customer service and effective teamwork in business and community settings.
