The Pottstown Cluster Outreach Center is excited to introduce the Understanding Poverty to Plan and Persevere (UP3) initiative, the new name and look for what has been formerly known as the Getting Ahead Initiative. The initiative incorporting the "Getting Ahead in a Just-Gettin' By World" curriculum began in February 2013. 

The Pottstown Cluster Outreach Center began this 16-week workshop series in February 2013 for individuals living in our community, receiving public assistance, to investigate poverty and establish and plan for stability.  Graduates of this program have become active volunteers at the Outreach Center to "give back" to the community and continue to develop social capital and the getting-ahead relationships needed to expand their social resources.
