The Poverty Simulation is a powerful exercise designed to help community leaders increase their understanding of the day-to-day challenges faced by those living in poverty and how current biases, systems, policies, and practices create barriers. 

How does it work?  The poverty simulation is a highly interactive immersion  experience that facilitates awareness of what a typical low-income family experiences in their attempt to survive from month to month. Each participant assumes the role of family members living in poverty for one month.   

Participants are encourage to register for the May 8th followup session. 

This program is co-sponsored by the Pioneer Library System, RRLC and Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES. Funding is also being provided from the Harold Hacker Grant.
