The Community Action Poverty Simulation breaks down stereotypes by allowing participants to step into the real-life situations of others.
Poverty is often portrayed as a stand-alone issue – but this simulation allows individuals to walk a month in the shoes of someone who is facing poverty and realize how complex and interconnected issues of poverty really are.
Some examples of groups who have used the Community Action Poverty Simulation experience include:
Customer Service Groups, Health Care Professionals, Educators, Clergy and Congregations, Social Service Providers, Elected Officials, Management Staff, College Students, Community Organizations, and Corporations
The simulation involves participants who take on the roles of members of up to 26 families, all facing a variety of challenging, but typical, circumstances.
