In a Poverty Simulation, 35-75 participants are given scripted role assignments and structured situations to resemble those that welfare recipients face daily. Participants experience specific realistic challenges based on their assigned roles as low-income people of various backgrounds and family structures.
Volunteers “staff” create a “community” with stores and agencies in which participants interact for four 15-minute weeks. “Staff” volunteers serve as welfare office workers, grocers, pawnbrokers, food pantry personnel, bill collectors, police, employment interviewers, and others.
