Poverty Simulation at PHS
Posted on 04/12/2018

Next Wednesday, April 18, Princeton High School will be holding a poverty simulation. A limited number of spaces are available for parents and community members.

The poverty simulation is designed to help participants understand what it might be like to be a part of a typical low-income family trying to survive from month-to-month. It is a simulation, not a game. The objective is to sensitize participants to the realities of life faced by those on a fixed or low income.

Sign up to attend this unique and unforgettable experience. 

Poverty is a reality for many individuals and families. But unless you've experienced poverty, it's difficult to truly understand. The Poverty Simulation bridges that gap from misconception to understanding. The Poverty Simulation is an interactive, immersion experience that sensitizes participants to the realities of poverty in order to promote poverty awareness, increase understanding and inspire local change. 
Join PPS families, high school students and community members and organizations for this unique experience on Wednesday, April 18, from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm in the PHS cafeteria.

* Note: This experience is for adults and high school age students only

The PHS Poverty Simulation program was funded through a grant awarded by the Princeton Education Foundation.
