HOPE Poverty Simulation

The HOPE Poverty Simulation invites you to take a first step by symbolically slipping into the shoes of men and women living in poverty, to try and understand what it’s like from the inside. The simulation is a 2 ½-hour, immersive, experiential learning opportunity designed to help participants symbolically experience the realities of a lifetime spent living in poverty. Over the course of the simulation, you will be confronted with a series of challenges that mimic the complex, everyday realities that men and women living in poverty are forced to grapple with.
