Poverty Simulations for Spring 2014
Faculty from WCE will be offering two Poverty Simulations this spring. This is the fourth year we are able to offer this experience to our students. Over 1,500 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 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. All volunteers should register through the link below.
- Wednesday, February 19 - CANCELLED
- Thursday, March 20, 5:30-8 p.m., Room 162
Registration link for participants and volunteers: http://appserv01.uncw.edu/SelectSurveyNET//TakeSurvey.aspx?SurveyID=76314n22
