Description

The Poverty Simulation Seminar is designed to showcase the challenges facing those living at or below the poverty level. Seminar participants will deal with maintaining employment, caring for children or elderly family members, seeking public assistance, dealing with transportation issues and other challenges faced by low-income citizens who live in urban areas. The simulation will provide a worldview changing experience and show participants the emotional toll and frustration faced by people living in poverty. The simulation is designed to help pro bono lawyers understand the realities of poverty. Participants will roleplay the lives of people living in poverty. Participants will have the task of providing for basic necessities and shelter on a limited budget during four 15-minute “weeks.”
