Bridges to Circles graduated 6 from the Getting Ahead training on July 10, 2012 at the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart Ave Maria Hall in Pensacola. This graduation marked the completion of class #13 for the Bridges to Circles initiative and brings the total of graduates to over 200 since this initiative launched in 2008. Getting Ahead in a Just-Gettin’-by-World™ is a workbook written for people in poverty. It provides a way to examine the impact that poverty has on individuals, families, and their communities. This environment offers adults the opportunity to reflect on and examine their lives, investigate new information that is relevant to them, assess their own resources, make plans for their own future stories, and offer ideas for building a prosperous community. The next step for the Graduates is to attend a series of transition sessions to equip them with the skills to move into Circles® and work with allies.
