You are invited to the upcoming United Way Poverty Simulation. The Poverty Simulation is an engaging and impactful experience in which participants begin to understand what it might be like to live in a typical low-income family trying to survive from month to month. It is a simulation, not a game. The Poverty Simulation brings an awareness of the realities our neighbors in poverty face everyday and ideally serves as a catalyst for ongoing dialogue and ultimately real local change. Each participant takes on the role of a person living in poverty. Roles are based off of real family scenarios. The goal is to make ends meet, feed your family, and maintain housing for one month.

Please consider joining us and feel free to bring family, friends and colleagues. This event is FREE and OPEN to the public. It will be held on Saturday, April 14 at the Red Wing High School Courtyard Café. Arrival, registration, and pre-assessment is from 8:30am—8:45am. The event begins at 9:00am and will be complete by noon.

This is a great opportunity for anyone 15 years of age and older to attend including high school students, faith communities, board members, staff, colleagues, local government officials, businesses, civic groups, leadership, nonprofits, and the general public, etc.
