Event description

Description

What:

Participants assume the role of a low-income family member living on a limited budget and interact with volunteers playing the roles of bill collectors, school administrators, service providers, and more. A simulation creates a community of people living in poverty for one “month” comprised of four 15-minute weeks. During this hour, each family unit must connect with community resources (i.e. schools, utility companies, social service workers, etc.) to meet their basic needs on a limited income. Dinner will be provided for all participants.

Why:

Poverty Simulations are a powerful, experiential opportunity to learn about and engage in poverty reduction. By participating in a simulation, community members increase their understanding of the dynamics of poverty and experience, on a small scale, the struggle for self-sufficiency many people face in Larimer County.

Who:

Anyone desiring to learn more about poverty from a new perspective. This training is free to participants, but requires registration.
