As a result, you can help improve out­comes for peo­ple expe­ri­enc­ing poverty.

Course Descrip­tion: Work together with your col­leagues to iden­tify and build strate­gies to out­line improve­ments to work­place poli­cies, ser­vices and inter­ac­tions with peo­ple expe­ri­enc­ing poverty.

Oppor­tu­ni­ties to make the train­ing even more rel­e­vant to your group or organization:

  • Our train­ing inte­grates local data and resources (where pos­si­ble) in order to make the train­ing con­tent more rel­e­vant to your group or organization.
  • We work with your group to iden­tify spe­cific objec­tives and goals you have for train­ing, and cus­tomize our activ­i­ties to fit your needs.
  • The train­ing hours are flex­i­ble, and we can work with you to iden­tify the best length of train­ing to ade­quately meet your learn­ing goals.
