FOUR FORCES INC

FAQS

What do we mean by?
Mental wealth: We see mental wealth as the social construction where a BIPOC community enables its participants to easily hand down and pass on generational wealth, in the form of assets and legacy to its members and institutions, without fear or inherent financial loss from intervention of governmental institutions, courts and/or agencies. We also see mental wealth as the encouragement and aid FFINC can share with the disenfranchised and underserved communities of color, by providing them with the necessary tools to gap difficult and challenging times in a person's (business or personal) life through sharing of and empowering with knowledge.

This is the time during which you, our client or partner, will receive an extensive introductory tour about FFINC and its services. This includes occupational socialization, the modeling others, communities of practice, transportation justice, volunteer service-learning, noncredit learning, coaching, facilitation, and mentoring services, mediation.
Occupational Socialization:
The learning of attitudes and behaviors necessary to recognize and sustainable competence within a context of employment. These include skills acquired through training, informal work norms, and peer-group values and relationships. FFINC will research and provide community training related to the employment space. FFINC partners with organizations to give them access to the community members that will benefit from workplace preparation, external training. FFINC functions as the bridge between organizations that don't have the resources to curriculum and facilitators to deliver.
Modeling Others:
Modeling can serve many other purposes such as understanding system responses that emerge from complex interactions of system components, supporting participatory processes, and analyzing consequences of human behavioral complexity. The Team of FFINC approaches civic engagement through modeling for different community events aimed at contributing to and developing integrative understanding toward enhanced resilience and sustainability.
Communities of Practice:
People in communities of practice share their experiences and knowledge in free-flowing creative ways that foster new approaches to problems. Communities of practice can drive strategy, generate new lines of business, solve problems, promote the spread of best practices, develop people’s professional skills, and help companies recruit and retain talent.
Non-Credit Learning:
Noncredit courses are short-term classes, workshops and trainings offered through continuing education partners. These are intended for communities and organizations who want to enrich their mental gain through general knowledge, learning a new skill, improving existing skills, or develop personal interests and obtain a certificate of completion. FFINC will stream live courses taught by instructors with a cultural lens and hands-on approach to get feedback from the local community of learners, while developing economic opportunities for those disenfranchised. We support and help develop revenue streams for every generation (Baby boomers to Generation Alpha) to contribute, educate, and reap the benefits of growing their mental wealth.
Transportation justice:
Justice within transportation requires long-term and immediate strategic planning at the local and regional levels in a coordinated fashion. Public transportation is most often used by those individuals who have limited means of private mobility. However, public transportation is also most often limited in poorer communities, with less service and poor outside shelter to wait for erratic arrivals/departures. This forces many residents to trade both fiscal and social capital for lengthy and inconvenient commutes, to work or important doctor appointments. The means to achieving income equality through education and jobs has been systematically overlooked in the past.
Community outreach:
FFINC defines outreach as any means of communications, including telephone, mail, email, video, online sharing tool or app, by and through which we can engage with BIPOC and/or disenfranchised or underserved communities, from which we come and to which we belong. Additionally FFINC defines the gaps and then helps these communities and nonprofit organizations figure out next steps and recommends specific technology and tools
