Poverty Simulations - Oct. 10 and Nov. 17

Faculty from WCE will be offering two Poverty Simulations this fall. This is the eighth year we are able to offer this experience to our students. Over 2,000 UNCW students and community members have participated in the simulation to date. As you know, this simulation is taken seriously and is not a game.  It is an opportunity for participants to get a glimpse into some of the challenges families living in poverty face every day.  It is not intended to offend anyone or replicate specific experiences. 

We also need 20 volunteers for each session. Please consider volunteering if you have already participated in the simulation or if you would like to learn more about it. 

  • Monday October 10, 5:30-8 p.m., Multipurpose Room McNeill Hall.
