Description

WELCOME TO LIFTOPOLIS

LIFTopolis is a one-of-a-kind interactive simulation that puts participants in the shoes of the hardworking parents and caregivers that LIFT serves across the country. This unique role-playing activity gives you a chance to better understand what our LIFT families experience when they try to navigate the complicated social services system.

We will transform the conference space at the Watergate Hotel into a living, breathing city filled with citizens, social service providers and the businesses that make up LIFTopolis.


HOW DOES IT WORK?

LIFTopolis is divided into four, 12 minute days. You have four days to accomplish the goals assigned to your parent. We’ll blow a whistle to mark the beginning and end of each day.

At the beginning of each day, you’ll have 12 minutes to visit the different service providers of LIFTopolis and try to complete your parent’s goals. At the end of each day, once we blow that second whistle, you’ll have to remove yourself from whatever service provider or line that you’re currently standing in to start anew.

Between each day is a three-minute rest period for you to gather your thoughts, strategize and figure out what next steps you should take in order to achieve your goals by the end of the simulation.

At the end of the fourth day, we reconvene as a group to debrief, reflect and talk change. Each LIFTopolis experience in customized for its target audience.


Support for this event is provided by the Citi Foundation as part of its Community Progress Makers Fund.
