Bridges to Prosperity (formerly Jeannette Circles) will be starting a Getting Ahead Class on Thursday April 24th. We are looking for motivated individuals who are interested in changing their life and financial circumstances.
Getting Ahead is a 17 week class where participants investigate barriers to poverty in their community, learn the hidden rules of ECONOMIC class and culture, investigate ways to build social capital and make a personal strategic plan to improve their financial stability and life situation.
The Getting Ahead class takes a solid commitment from participants. Each participant receives a $10.00 stipend weekly for taking the class because there is a good bit of work involved. Participants MUST be residents of the City of Jeannette. Classes are held at the Salvation Army on Thursdays from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. A light lunch is provided and childcare is available for ages 4 and up.
If you have know of any Jeannette residents that would be interested in taking this class, please have them call Lucille Bittner, Bridges to Prosperity Community Connector at 724-914-0114 as soon as possible. Spaces are limited and will be filled on a first come first serve basis.
