One in five children in America live at or below the poverty line.

These numbers should disturb us, yet statistics can have a numbing effect. The Cost of Poverty Experience (COPE) offers you an opportunity to walk in the shoes of families in our community who face poverty every day.

Think Tank developed COPE with individuals who have lived experience in poverty. Their stories offer an opportunity to move beyond assumptions or stereotypes to a more holistic understanding of the causes and effects of poverty.

In this 2.5 hour hands-on training, you will experience a month in the life of families struggling to get by. The experiential nature of COPE will help you more deeply understand the complexities of poverty, paving the way for our community to be better allies and advocates for under resourced families.

You will have many ways to spend your time this month, but this experience you will never forget.

Fee is $25/person.

During payment process:

Select "Poverty Simulation Registration" from the dropdown

Ages 13 and up.
