The Access Poverty Education program exists to educate community members about poverty through education and action. One of our goals is to overcome misconceptions about poverty and motivate people to become involved in activities that reduce poverty in our communities. Together, we can make a positive impact.
The poverty simulation experience is designed to help participants begin to understand what it might be like to live in a typical low-income family trying to survive from week to week.
The Youth Hunger Simulation experience is the youth version of our popular Poverty Simulation Workshop and is designed to introduce youth ages 12 – 18 to the issues of food insecurity and poverty.
