What is Your Poverty Culture IQ?

Our Poverty IQ Workshops are led by our Executive Director, Trudy Shuravloff.  Trudy grew up in generational poverty and  she and her team share insights and perspectives that bring clarity to the decision making and prioritizing that takes place in North American poverty.  Often, those who seek to help and understand and help those in poverty are left mystified at why their clients do what they do.  The workshop covers research/evidence based best practices for optimum outcomes when working with people raised in poverty culture.  The workshop includes material from Dr. Ruby Payne’s “Framework for Understanding Poverty” curriculum.  Trudy is a certified trainer of Dr. Payne’s material.

Suggested donation of $200.00 for a two hour interactive training for a group.  Book a time for Trudy to speak:
