Getting Ahead in a Just Getting By World

The Getting Ahead program offers educational/vocational support to individuals “stuck” in generational or situational poverty, and is based on Getting Ahead in a Just-Gettin’-By World, a program created by Philip DeVol, co-author of Bridges Out of Poverty. It fosters exploration and adaptation skills that are based on the most effective methods toward a self-sustainable life and employment. Individuals investigate the theory and process of change and the role of community agencies and organizations as they explore poverty in their community.

Classes are held once or twice per year based on needs. Classes are 2 ½ hours in length and meet once per week for up to sixteen weeks.
