Seeking Poverty Simulation Volunteers

The OACAC Community Action Poverty Simulation consists of four 15-minute sessions, each representing a week, in which participants grapple with real-life situations faced by individuals living in poverty.

The Simulation forces participants to assume the role of a low-income family and confront the realities of living on a severely restricted income.

The purpose of the Poverty Simulation is three-fold:

  • Promote poverty awareness
  • Increase understanding of the challenges faced by individuals living in poverty
  • Inspire local change to overcome the effects of poverty
