Poverty Simulation is an exploration of the challenges that families in poverty (like NFCC clients) face every day. Participants are divided into family units reflecting pre-assigned skills, income, housing and a variety of stumbling blocks. They are given tasks to complete in a two hour role-play. Staffers (volunteers) run the community tables like Employment Office, Transportation, Jail, School, Charity, etc. During the simulation, challenges arise and decision must be made. There are laughs and frustrations along the way. At the end, the whole group discusses their experiences and what they have learned. You must RSVP so that we can plan the “family units”. Feel free to invite others. This is an experience you will not soon forget!
This event is open to the public. It is hosted by the Alpharetta Chamber of Commerce at the Alpharetta City Hall Community Room.
Please RSVP to attend.
