Poverty Scholars Program | Leadership School

  In August 2009, the Poverty Scholars Program will convene a week-long Leadership School to be held in Charleston, WV and to be coordinated in collaboration with the Direct Action Welfare Group (DAWG). The Leadership School marks the foundation of a modern Poor People’s Campaign. Leaders who have participated in preparatory Strategic Dialogues will be joined by an additional 100 select emerging leaders from partner organizations to participate in a variety of training sessions, arts and cultural events, and campaign planning. Goals Include: Training a core of leaders in the movement to end poverty; Networking poor leaders/organizations from diverse communities across the country; Beginning to lay the groundwork for reigniting the Poor People’s Campaign; Formally integrating Poverty Scholars into the leadership of the Poverty Scholars Program and its activities. via Poverty Scholars Program | Poverty Initiative. We are very excited to be a part of this and look forward to sharing this experience with leaders within DAWG and in the larger community. Poverty Scholars Pictures March 2008
