Getting Ahead Facilitator Training November 30, 2012 Pensacola, Florida

 

Getting Ahead Facilitator Training

Getting Ahead™ in a Just-Gettin’-By World is a workbook for people in poverty that shows how to use the hidden rules of class to build up financial, emotional, social, and other resources. Understanding the hidden rules of the middle class and wealth, and choosing to use them, can open doors to new relationships, new jobs, and higher resources.  Getting Ahead facilitates a process for people from poverty to investigate the impact that poverty has had on themselves and their community and to use this information to build resources for a better life and community.  This seminar demonstrates how to use the Getting Ahead in a Just-Gettin’-By World workbook for people in poverty.

 

Working in a group with a facilitator, people who use this workbook will develop a series of mental models to examine their own lives and create new future stories. In 15–20 sessions, participants explore the impact that poverty has had on them, investigate economic realities, complete a self-assessment of their own resources and make plans to build them, and develop a mental model of community prosperity.

 

The Getting Ahead™ process does not provide answers to the participants on how to establish economic stability, nor does it make the argument for change. Instead, motivation, insight, and plans come from the participants themselves. Upon completing Getting Ahead, participants will have a plan of their own based on the knowledge acquired through the co-investigative process and expressed in new mental models.

 

Getting Ahead™ offers Dr. Ruby Payne’s concepts, which are familiar to educators and social service providers across the country, directly to people in poverty.
