The VCSC will be facilitating a Community Action Poverty Simulation for the community and members of Cornerstone Church. Volunteers from the community, various partner agencies and organizations participate as "Service Providers" during the event. Students will simulate living as families and attempt to provide a living for their families on a monthly budget just above the poverty level. During the "month," participants will encounter many of the same challenges families experience in the real world.
After the event, there will be a facilitated discussion between participants and volunteers about the challenges in our own community.
Volunteers will need to check in a the Church no later than 8:30 a.m. All supplies and information will be provided at the simulation. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any clients or program participants that would wish to be a part of this and are willing to share their own experiences about living in poverty in our community. Stipend (gift cards) are available for participating clients.
