This Study Group will be online.
If you've ever wondered why people in poverty can't seem to break out of its grip, sometimes even for generations, then 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 dynamic programs making a real difference right here in Washtenaw County.
