Poverty Simulation

November 5, 2019 from 12:00-3:30 pm

We can read about poverty. We can study poverty. We can talk about poverty but here is a chance to get inside of the experience of those living below the poverty line. All are welcome to attend the Poverty Simulation where we get inside the lives of the men, women, children and senior citizens who fight to make ends meet.

This is an exceptional opportunity for those going into careers in business, in education, in social work and any career field where you will be working with people who are fighting economic challenges on a daily basis. Certificates will be available for those who participate and a number of faculty will be offering course credit.

Years of past student participants have validated the life-changing nature of this program and what it had to offer them for their future careers and academic pursuits. A few hours of your time will have a huge impact on your life.
