What is Getting Ahead?

Getting Ahead is a small group program that looks at poverty and unstable situations through the lens of economic class to better understand how our society works. Participants will become “investigators” in the program who examine their own experience of hardship as well as explore community issues that impact poverty such as housing, jobs, relationships, and transportation. The purpose of Getting Ahead is to help investigators identify areas of action and movement in their own lives and help them move forward towards a better future.

Getting Ahead helps you acquire the tools to make changes in your life and strategically address issues that often prevent people from moving forward.
