Jan 6, 2013 From staff reports

A daylong workshop aimed at service providers, educators and business owners whose daily work connects with people living in poverty will be hosted by Central Wyoming College on Jan. 25 at its Lander Center.

The Bridges Out of Poverty workshop provides participants detailed analysis and specific tools, solutions and strategies that may be implemented immediately.

The 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. session is led by certified instructors Hattie Penny and Tim Thorson of Circles Wyoming.

It is based in part on Ruby Payne's myth-shattering "A Framework for Understanding Poverty."

The $50 course fee includes lunch and a book. Educators can earn a half PTSB credit for participation.
