Event description

Description

The Living on the Edge poverty simulation experience is a group engagement opportunity for 50 to 80 participants. The poverty simulation is designed to help participants understand what it might be like to live in a typical low-income family trying to survive from day-to-day. It consists of four 15-minute weeks (one month). Participants are assigned a role as a family member required to complete daily activities using resources set up around the room. After the month is over the a facilitator will conduct a debrief session and invite participants and the 16 volunteers, who take on various roles as community resource staff, to discuss their experience.
