Poverty: Looking from the Inside Out

Understanding Poverty and What You Can Do

Study Group Study Group
Study Group
If you’ve ever wondered why people in poverty don’t just….get a job, stick to a budget, or work a little harder, this class is for you. Together we will explore the dynamics of poverty—looking at what keeps people in it, what’s needed to break out of it, and how we can all play a role in building community to end poverty.
Class includes hands-on simulations, thoughtful discussion, and personal stories of struggle and transformation. The final class focuses on solutions and will feature two dynamic programs making a real difference right here in Washtenaw County. This Study Group led by Suzanne Van Dam is for those 50 and over and will meet Tuesdays, 10:00 - 11:30 a.m., April 23rd through May 7th.
