The Poverty Simulation is an impactful and interactive experience in which participants begin to understand what it might be like to live in a typical low income family trying to survive from month to month. It is a simulation, not a game. Each participant takes on the role of a person living in poverty. Roles are based on real family scenarios. The goal is to make ends meet, feed your family and maintain housing. The simulation includes debriefing and discussion. The challenges represented are a daily struggle for many.
