About the The Getting Ahead Program

Within the 10-module program participants develop their plan to ‘get ahead’ and secure a stable financial story for themselves and their families. Participants study conditions that lead to poverty. They make a plan they want for their future. They connect with people and services that help put their plan in action.
In a supportive group participants explore economic factors, personal strengths and community resources. The group talks about poverty, the stigma surrounding poverty and ways to get out. Trained facilitators, mentors and guests guide participants through the 10 modules with study, exercises, and discussions.
