Education, Training & Resources

Education & Training

At the Urban Mission, we believe that in order to break cycles of poverty, hunger and homelessness, we must first understand these cycles. We also believe that it is possible to engage these issues in meaningful, sustainable, and justice-oriented ways.

We facilitate speaking engagements, trainings, and group volunteer opportunities with the goal of promoting personal transformation and systemic change. To keep this program sustainable and to allow a range of groups, all of our education sessions can be facilitated on a donation basis. To learn more, we invite you to email: [email protected].

Speaking Engagements

We are happy to work with groups of all kinds to facilitate educational sessions that meet the needs and learning objectives of your group. To inquire about our availability, please email us at [email protected] or call: 740.282.8010.

Training Sessions

We offer trainings associated with “Bridges Out of Poverty” concepts, asset-based community development, trauma informed care practices, client choice pantry operations, housing & homeless services, mission, and transactional vs transformational ministry.  We are also available to hold “poverty simulations” for groups of all sizes.
