Poverty Sim­u­la­tion Work­shop
Feb. 24, 2017, 8:00AM — 12:00PM (Port­land, OR)
Work­shop Details: The poverty sim­u­la­tion is a learn­ing tool that will help you gain a bet­ter under­stand­ing of the daily real­i­ties of poverty. Dur­ing the sim­u­la­tion, par­tic­i­pants role-play the lives of peo­ple expe­ri­enc­ing poverty. The sim­u­la­tion enables par­tic­i­pants to look at poverty from a vari­ety of angles and and then to rec­og­nize and dis­cuss the poten­tial for change within the com­mu­nity.
Reg­is­tra­tion Fee: $25. NOTE: Reg­is­tra­tion fee is waived for par­tic­i­pants who vol­un­teer as ser­vice providers, or who vol­un­teer in other capac­i­ties. See below for more detail.
