Poverty Simulation and Discussion

Poverty is a reality for many individuals and families in the communities we serve.  This simulation is an opportunity to experience poverty first-hand to create a deeper understanding of the challenges and issues faced by low-income families trying to survive month to month.  Paulo Freire describes poverty as living in "the tyranny of the moment" and those are the moments you will experience in this simulation.  The Community Action Poverty Simulation is an interactive immersion experience.  It is a simulation, not a game, and will be followed by a discussion period.

Please note:

1.  This part of Flex Day and is available to the first 80 people.

2.  This is a two and a half hour block on Flex Day from 1:20p to 3:45pm in the Cafeteria.
