Staying Ahead means staying connected. Through trial and error, we developed a three-part approach that helps Staying Ahead investigators stay connected to each other, develop social capital, and discover their passion and purpose. In this session, we will describe an innovative, barrier-breaking approach to Staying Ahead activities that positions investigators as leaders of change in the Bridges Community.

Learning objectives include:

  • How to help Getting Ahead graduates build their resources, and how to create a space for Getting Ahead graduates at the decision-making table in your community
  • Key ways to develop Staying Ahead peer support networks
  • Examples of challenges and successes in implementing Staying Ahead
