Bridges Out of Poverty

BOP (Bridges Out of Poverty)

BOP is a program that strives to help participants become employed or return to school/job training, building permanent resources and strengthening life skills as well as teaching the community what living in poverty feels like. Bridges Out of Poverty is made up of the following components:

Getting Ahead (GA) Classes

The primary component of the BOP program is Getting Ahead, which offers classes that teach participants financial literacy, budgeting, life skills, planning, goal setting, communication differences between socio-economic classes, resumes and interviewing skills, managing change and stress, and standing up for themselves.

Additional classes are hosted by the Licking County Justice Center, Adult Court Services, Courage House and Spencer House.
