A weekly 'kitchen table learning experience' for individuals living in poverty or on lower incomes.

Learn the skills and tools to Get Ahead.......

'Getting Ahead in a Just Getting by World' meets weekly over 15 sessions to help you evaluate your life so you can develop the understanding and skills necessary to survive and flourish.

What happens at Getting Ahead? Participants (called 'Investigators') will examine where they are now and where they want to be; including developing a plan for prosperity broken down into manageable and achievable steps for both themselves and their community. 

Getting Ahead happens weekly over 15 sessions. Meals and gift card incentives are provided at every session for investigators who will:

 - Examine all areas of their lives including resources, attitudes and aspirations
 - Examine the realities of conditions in the community and how they impact investigators
 - Learn skills to raise confidence and do what it takes to get ahead
 - Learn about the hidden rules of economic class and how to navigate around them
 - Investigate how to build resources and make connections in the community
 - Build new friendships with others in the group
 - Share good food and have fun in a confidential and supportive environment

Get started with 'Getting Ahead' - share your experience and learn from others; discover your strengths and build your resources.
