Can you endure a month living in poverty? Find out by joining us for our event Navigating Through a Life of Poverty: An Interactive Simulation presented by Student Care Services and Northland Church. The event features an hour-long interactive activity simulating a month living in poverty. Attendees will play the role of a low income family and throughout the course of the simulation will have to navigate the available community resources to attempt to provide for their basic needs. Following the activity we will reflect on our experience and share some UCF and community resources that can assist individuals in need.

Please RSVP to attend the event, as there are limited spaces available. RSVPs will close on Sunday, March 30th, 2018 at 5:00pm. Event check-in will begin at 6:45pm and last until 7pm please arrive during that time frame.
