Getting Ahead Workshops

Interfaith Community Services hosts Getting Ahead Workshops.  This program, funded by the Pima County “Ending Poverty Now” initiative, helps ensure people are not just getting by, but are instead “getting ahead” with an intensive 16-week course designed for people in or near poverty.

The free workshops offer a supportive environment to explore solutions and build resources to help participants become more stable. Participants examine their own experience of poverty as well as explore issues in the community that impact poverty − spending, housing, jobs, transportation, resources − providing critical information the community can use to take action to end poverty.

Our next Cohort for Getting Ahead will begin February 4, 2021. Meetings will be held virtually every Thursday 9am – 12 noon for 17 weeks. Deadline for application has been extended to January 27, 2021. Apply here.

If you are interested in future cohorts or to learn more about participating in the Getting Ahead workshop contact
Tandala Kidd at tkidd@icstucson.org or (520) 526-9311
