About The Course
What is a poverty advocate?
A poverty advocate is someone who takes the time and has the compassion to support people in the community through creating and holding space for dialogue and sharing without judgment or fear. With soft hearts, generosity, kindness, and humility, they engage with the community in a constructive and kind way that is productive and builds bridges.
By walking alongside vulnerable community members, poverty advocates break down barriers and stereotypes, particularly within government, legal, and social systems. They walk the grey areas of these systems and work to see the broader perspectives and root causes of the issues that impact people in their daily lives.
Gain the knowledge and skills to help support vulnerable residents using a human rights approach to addressing poverty.
