Awareness and Acquisition: Attacking Poverty by Creating New Wealth. A Community Based Approach to Bridging the Divides of Class, Culture and Race


E4-12 utilizes a proven methodology to increase personal, institutional and community capacity to build bridges across the existing chasms of economic class, culture, and race. E4-12 workshop and work group attendees acquire the mindsets and soft skills necessary to bridge personal and systemic barriers. Outcomes include greater personal self-sustainability. Employers enjoy greater employee satisfaction and retention. Development of relationships of mutual respect unleash human potential. This is turn creates a stable base for creative problem solvers to build social capital – and human capital – to generate new wealth across all sectors of the community.
