Generally, simulations are offered to students and professionals who work in the human services or education fields. The simulation provides an opportunity to learn about some of the challenges families face when they lack adequate resources to meet their daily needs. The Poverty Simulation is also provided to businesses, school districts and local governments as a part of our commitment to raise awareness and serve those living in poverty throughout Michigan.
If you are interested in hosting a poverty simulation please contact Katie Reck, Faculty Leader/Poverty Simulation Coordinator, at 989-774-2760 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
