A poverty simulation is a powerful experience where participants live a ‘month’ as a low-income family to foster empathy and gain a deeper understanding of poverty.

Help us prepare for upcoming poverty simulations by re-building all materials and packages for the activity. Volunteers may also be invited to support event set up, fill the role of a service provider during the simulation, or help with wrap up.
