Do You Know How to Get Ahead in a just Gettin’ By World?

It may seem like we see so many people get ahead in life. We ask ourselves how do I do the same for me and my family?

If you want to learn how to make those small changes and get BIG RESULTS? Parent University has a great workshop on ways for you and your family to soar. Building up work, family, community and so much more.


Getting Ahead in a Just-Gettin’-By World is a book and a 16-session curriculum that helps individuals in poverty build their resources for a more prosperous life for themselves, their families, and their communities.


The Getting Ahead curriculum:

  • Involves rigorous work done in a safe learning environment with the support of an experienced facilitator and co-facilitator.
  • Enables participants, called “investigators,” to examine their own experience of poverty as well as explore issues in the community that impact poverty − banking, housing, jobs, transportation − providing critical information the community can use to take action to end poverty.
  • Guides investigators through an assessment of their own resources and how to build those resources as part of their move to self-sufficiency.
  • Puts the concepts, tools, and relationships in the hands of people in poverty to make a difference in their own lives and in the life of their community.
