CQIU held a 3-day workshop in Columbus, GA to support Enrichment Services Program, Inc. in launching its Poverty Reduction Lab initiative. In collaboration with Circles USA, this workshop introduced CQI tools to the leadership team and supported them in identifying members of the community to invite to an upcoming Learning Session. The leadership team’s positive and enthusiastic attitudes were contagious! We look forward to actively supporting Enrichment Services Program with processes that will take place in Year 1, including participation in Circles USA’s trademarked Transformational Leadership Program, ongoing PDCA cycles, independent evaluation of procedures and outcomes, and nurturing personal well-being as each leader dives deeper into intensely serving the Columbus community. This Poverty Reduction Lab site is focusing on families with children ages 0-5 years old, and moving parents from job placement to career advancement.
