November Talks on Tuesdays



Many elements combine to keep families from moving out of poverty and into the middle class. Based on the work of Dr. Ruby Payne and Phil De Vol in the book Bridges Out of Poverty, this workshop will highlight the forces that influence decision-making for the poor, middle class and wealthy. Participants will leave with a better understanding that all behavior has meaning and is influenced by the social class in which one lives.
