Getting Ahead

Getting Ahead in a Just Gettin' By World is a 50 hour curriculum that provides under-resourced people access to the same information provided for professionals and community leaders working to end poverty. This information comes from the Bridges Out of Poverty methodology and framework.

Getting Ahead is taught in a safe learning environment and puts concepts, tool, and relationships in the hands of people in poverty to make a difference in their own lives. In return, they are more able to positively impact the public sphere.

This progress happens through partner agencies, such as community colleges, churches, and non-profit and community organizations like YWCA. Interested in learning how you can provide and facilitate a Getting Ahead class? Contact us today!


SJC Bridges also offers tools for professional development for businesses and community leaders excited to contribute to a bright and vital future that works for all.

Day One Training

Day One training provides information and tools for professional development for businesses, community leaders, and other organizations who want to make a difference in the community.

Spend a day with our experts regarding poverty and learn effective tools rooted in nationally recognized best practices. You will be able to identify the barriers to getting out of poverty and implement strategies to remove those barriers from your organization and the community.

The goal is that with this knowledge, leaders will play a crucial role in identifying and stopping the systematic barriers which often perpetuate the cycle of generational poverty.
