PARTNER BOOTCAMP: “Bridges Out Of Poverty Framework”

November 5, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


This session offers an overview of the “Bridges Out of Poverty” framework for understanding poverty. Learn more in this interactive PARTNER BOOTCAMP session, part of SVP’s professional development offerings designed for Partners.

About the Session:

In this interactive session, participants will explore the key concepts underlying the “Bridges Out of Poverty” framework. The intent of the “Bridges” framework is not to provide immediate solutions to questions concerning poverty, but to enhance the dialogue by providing an opportunity to explore the underlying dynamics that cause and maintain poverty from the individual to the systemic level. “Bridges Out of Poverty” uses the lens of economic class and provides concrete tools and strategies for a community to prevent, reduce, and alleviate poverty. Session objectives include:

  • Explore different mental models of social class
  • Understand the interrelationship between resources
  • Discuss hidden rules of social class

About our Presenter:

Leisha Conners Bauer is currently the Manager of Targeted Initiatives for Boulder County Community Services.  Leisha is a lifetime certified Bridges Out of Poverty trainer and has offered the trainings to hundreds of Boulder County residents.  Leisha holds a Masters in Public Administration from the University of Colorado and a Bachelor of Science in applied economics from Cornell University.

About the “Partner Bootcamp” Series:
SVP is focused on building the capacity of Boulder County’s nonprofit sector, and developing the philanthropy of its citizens. We invite current and former SVP Partners to join us for this PARTNER BOOTCAMP series, with sessions offered quarterly.

Supplementing Partner involvement in our grants process or the volunteer time Partner-consultants provide area nonprofits, these professional development sessions include topics meant to increase capacity skills, and develop philanthropic awareness among the SVP membership.
