Investigations is based on Getting Ahead in a Just-Gettin’-by World, a workshop where people are challenged to create a path for making a stable, secure life while building economic stability. In Investigations, participants will investigate what it takes to succeed and to build a high-quality life even during hard economic times. The focus of the course is on economic class in America and the futures we want to build for ourselves and our communities. By examining society’s rules and how to build resources, individuals can stabilize their economic realities, operate effectively in new situations, and become active in the community.
