T.I.E.R.S Out of Poverty Training

Together Informing Existing Realities Successfully Out of Poverty (T.I.E.R.S) overall goal is to enable participants, whom shall be called “investigators” to examine their own experiences of poverty as well as explore issues within the community that impact poverty such as lack of financial means (employment, banking), housing, jobs, transportation etc. Investigators provide critical information the community can use t take action and decrease poverty. We (facilitators) guide investigators through an assessment of their own resources and how to build those resources and how to build those resources as part of their self-sufficiency. By placing concepts tools and relationships in the hands of of people in poverty to make a difference in their own lives and in the life of others is empowering the individual as well as reviving our communities.

What is the getting ahead program

Getting Ahead Program is an eight week curriculum that supports 8 -12 individuals in generational or situational poverty with resources to do just that- get ahead. This motivational method investigates way beyond budgeting classes and goes into understanding how to form personal and community changes so families are no longer “just getting by.”

The participants inspect the mental and emotional models that are governing in the ethnicity of poverty and compare them to the understood “common sense” that governs middle class and workplaces, schools,

churches and government shaped under it Participants contrast the rules of poverty which they know well, with the rules of middle class which often feel tremendously foreign.

Participants set strong-minded goals and action plans and look carefully at the common drawbacks and negative attitudes that may leave them short of these goals.
