Poverty Simulation says
Gain a better understanding about what it’s like to live on the edge of poverty in this 3.5-hour sim­u­la­tion. The experience enables par­tic­i­pants to look at poverty from a vari­ety of angles and then to explore possible avenues of change within the community.

A participant says, “I played the role of a teenager in a family with few resources. Within a matter of minutes I had dropped out of high school and was running the streets scrambling for ways to help my family. To stand in the shoes of a youth facing such a choice really impressed upon me how poverty has victims we never even consider.”

For ages 16 and up. Hosted at Portland State University, George C. Hoffmann Hall, 1833 SW 11th Ave.
