Following the criteria listed below, bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10. We’ll happily hang them in our window for all Library Square traffic to see.

  • The event must take place in Utah.
  • The organization promoting the event  must be a qualified 501 (c) (3) charity or political subdivision.

KCPW would like to encourage you to make the most of your post by adding a featured image and links to your organization.  Utilize the provided field boxes (i.e. location, ticket information) to display information as accurately and quickly as possible.  Please do not submit duplicate postings for the same event.

Poverty Simulation – Special Course (In conjunction with 2-1-1 Talks) @ Salt Lake City Community College - Miller Campus
Jun 25 @ 8:00 am – 4:30 pm
Poverty Simulation - Special Course (In conjunction with 2-1-1 Talks) @ Salt Lake City Community College - Miller Campus  |  |  |

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 month to month. The objective is to sensitize participants to the realities faced by low-income people.

Participants will assume the roles of different families facing poverty. The “families” will have access to community resources and services that are usually available to people living in poverty, such as a bank, community action agency, utility company, pawn broker, grocery, DFS office, payday and title loan facility, mortgage company, and a child care facility.

The entire experience will last up to three hours, including an introduction and briefing, the actual simulation exercise, and a debriefing period in which participant and volunteer staffers share their feelings and experiences about what they have learned about the lives of people in poverty.
