Bridges Out of Poverty Training 4/16
27 West 8th Street, Erie, PA 16501 (ECRSSA Entrance)
Thursday, April 16, 2020
05:00pm - 08:00pm

This training is for individuals interested in becoming a mentor to low income individuals. As a mentor you play a vital role in the success of the Getting Ahead participants by providing them advice, assist with goal setting, and provide an added support as these individuals work their way out of poverty. We ask our mentors to attend a one-day training in the Bridges Out of Poverty principles which helps educate the community about the three economic classes and how it all fits together. This interative training is very enlightening of the way we view poverty in our city and community. Help be a part of the solution! Make a difference in someone's life! Contact Maureen Kennedy Fink at
