Virtual Poverty Simulator
Lebanon County Christian Ministries and Lebanon Valley College are teaming up to provide a unique virtual poverty simulation experience on Friday, Jan. 8 from 6-8:30 pm via Zoom!
The event is free!
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. Examples include:
• A single parent with limited resources and no transportation must find a way to get to work and get their child to daycare.
• An elderly person must find a way to pay for both utilities and medication.
• A young adult must care for siblings while their parent is incarcerated.
• An elderly couple must raise their grandchildren and deal with their own health and employment issues.
After the experience, individuals then have the opportunity to discuss what they’ve learned with their peers and the event facilitators.
