Poverty Simulations

Poverty Simulation & Special Events

Find NFCC Special Events sign-ups here.

Poverty Simulation is an exploration of the challenges that families in poverty (like NFCC clients) face every day.  Participants are divided into family units reflecting pre-assigned skills, income, housing and a variety of stumbling blocks.  They are given tasks to complete in a two hour role-play. Staffers (volunteers) run the community tables like Employment Office, Transportation, Jail, School, Charity, etc.  During the simulation, challenges arise and decision must be made.  There are laughs and frustrations along the way.  At the end, the whole group discusses their experiences and what they have learned.  You must RSVP so that we can plan the "family units".  Feel free to invite others. This is an experience you will not soon forget!

If this is your first time being a "Staffer" you may want to look at the attached documents for a better understanding of the event.  While all positions are trained on site, we find that some first time volunteers appreciate this information ahead of time.  We may modify the actual experience from what is described.  You do not need to print these materials.

Also, please complete and bring the attached waiver if this was your first time.
