Could you survive a month in proverty?  What choices would you make if you had limited time and money?

The MACA Poverty Simulation is designed to help those of us who have never experienced poverty to better understand the challenges faced by those who live it daily.   This is a 3 hour workshop with materials provided.  

Facilitators: Barney Slowey and Tamara Sharp, WI teachers and administrators, currently facilitators for the Silver Lake College Educational Leadershop Program.  Barney and Tamara do not charge for the facilitation, as this is their "give back" to their profession.   Silver Lake College sponsors the simulation that they facilitate at no charge. 

Read what other participants have said about their presentation:

"Powerful experience to gain a different perspective on poverty"

"One of the best in-services ever"

"Life changing. I'm so steeped in middle class values that I've never realized what poverty is really like"

"Thank you for taking the time to bring us this experience"

"I couldn't survive in poverty for two hours. I can't imagine how my studens live it daily"

Poverty Simulation was developed by the Missouri Association for Community Action

Please join us for this eye opening experience.
