Please join us on Oct. 12 at 8 a.m. or 1 p.m. for the fall semester’s Poverty Simulations, an exercise designed to help participants understand what it’s like to live in a typical low-income family and survive from week to week.
In this interactive workshop, participants assume the roles of family members facing poverty. Participants experience some of the daily challenges a family in poverty may endure over a simulated experience of one month.
The Poverty Simulation lasts approximately two hours. It includes an introduction and briefing, the exercise, and a debriefing period in which participants and volunteer staffers share their reflections of the experience.
The morning simulation is from 8 to 11 a.m.; the afternoon simulation is from 1 to 4 p.m.
Please RSVP in advance for the event.
