Event description

Description


Cuyahoga Community College invites you to participate in a powerful learning experience that creates insight into the chronic crisis that consumes so many working poor families.

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. It is a simulation, not a game. The object is to sensitize participants to the realities faced by low-income people.

CAPS exists to:


Promote Poverty Awareness

During the simulation, role-play a month in poverty and experience low-income families' lives.

Increase Understanding

After the simulation, you will unpack your learning and brainstorm community change.

Inspire Local Change

Together, you can be a voice to end poverty in your family, friends and community.

REGISTRATION IS LIMITED.
