Poverty Simulation: A Day In Their Shoes

What is a poverty simulation?

The poverty simulation experience is designed to help participants begin to understand what it might be like to live in a typical low-income family trying to survive from month to month. The object is to sensitize participants to the realities faced by low income people.

The Poverty Simulation provides participants with the opportunity to assume the role of a low-income family member living on a limited budget. The experience is divided into four 15-minute sessions, each of which represents one week in which you must provide for your family and maintain your home. It quickly dispels the myth that “people would do fine if they would only go out and get a job!”

When: October 29, 2014 (8:30am-11:30am)
