Virtual Poverty Institute

Paper people

We are excited to announce that UNE Online will partner with Communications Across Barriers to bring you an intensive two-day virtual Poverty Institute, as well as a two-day Poverty Coaching Institute, March 20-23.

Taking part in an event like this gives those involved the opportunity to learn how to implement poverty-informed practices that result in improved outcomes for our community members. It will also give others the tools to conduct ongoing professional development check-ins, run workshops, and engage in conversations that can increase poverty competencies throughout organizations. 

Take a look at the details for each institute below:
