  • Develop a series of mental models to examine their own lives and create new future stories
  • Help stabilize their lives
  • Investigate the impact that poverty has had on themselves and their community
  • Use this information to build resources for a better life and community

Facilitator training includes the following topics: philosophy, theory, motivation and incentives, long-term support, mental models, content and process, and practice sessions.  Additionally, you will receive:

  • Overview of Getting Ahead PowerPoint slides
  • Preparation to facilitate Getting Ahead groups
  • Personalized follow-up coaching
