The Bucks County Opportunity Council, in partnership with Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick,  presents a Poverty Simulation

The Poverty Simulation is designed to help participants understand what it might be like to live in a low-income family trying to move beyond survival and achieve sustainable economic self-sufficiency.  Participants will role-play a person living in poverty for four abbreviated weeks (15 minutes each). The simulation will be followed by a debrief and discussion of the experience, and includes an overview of the Bucks County Opportunity Council’s  approach to helping people move beyond poverty.

When: Thursday, August 15th, 2019. Doors open at 9:30, Event from 10AM- 12 PM;
Where: Gallagher Room, located in the Rollins Center, at the Bucks County Community College,
Newtown Campus, 275 Swamp Rd, Newtown, PA 18940
