The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona is looking for Allies to support the 'Getting Ahead in a Just-Gettin'-By World" workshop for young mothers aged 16-28. In the workshop, the young mothers will examine the causes of poverty as well as create an actionable plan for a more stable future.
An important aspect of the program are the Allies, community members who are dedicated to helping the young mothers navigate their way out of poverty. Allies will meet in 'Circles of Care' with small groups to help the young mothers implement their plan and create a better future.
The Allies must commit to meeting in the Circles of Care once a month for about 3 hours for a year. The Circles of Care will begin in Spring 2017.
Allies must complete one 8-hour training that will be provided through the Food Bank. The training will focus on understanding poverty as well as an overview of the Getting Ahead workshop. The first training is on November 29th, but there will be more training opportunities in January and February of 2017.
Consider becoming an Ally f you are interested in being part of an innovative group of people committed to reducing poverty in our community!
