Session Length:
3 Hours
Room:
Morgan Library Event Hall
Description:
The poverty simulation experience is designed to help participants begin to understand what it might be like to live in a typical low-income family trying to survive from month to month. IT IS A SIMULATION, NOT A GAME. The object is to sensitize participants to the realities faced by low-income people. In the simulation, up to 88 (and a minimum of 45) participants assume the roles of up to 26 different families facing poverty. The experience lasts for three hours and includes an introduction and briefing, the actual simulation exercise, and a debriefing period. Please note: We must have 45 participants for this session to "be a go."
Goals and Target Audience:
This session is open to the entire CSU community. Grad students, staff and faculty are encouraged to participate. Participants must make a commitment to participate in the full three- hour session.
