National Affinity Group: A Series of Briefings on Poverty and the Impact of Covid-19

Tuesday, August 04, 2020, 12:00pm – 1:00pm EDT

How does poverty impact access to higher education and educational success? In this webinar, we will discuss how the community can help build opportunities and networks for underserved students to support retention and success.

Over the coming months the National Affinity Group on Jewish Poverty will be hosting a series of webinars and virtual meetups to discuss the many challenges the coronavirus pandemic has created for Jews facing poverty and the agencies that serve them. We will hear the needs from the service providers on the ground supporting our front lines, share best practices and information, and strategize on ways to respond collectively.

Each webinar is moderated by Susan Ditkoff of The Bridgespan Group Boston.
