Poverty Simulator Tuesday, October 19 - 12:00pm-1:00pm Zoom For many millions of hard-working families, the basic ingredients for a good life are increasingly beyond their reach. Almost one in four working families doesn’t earn enough to provide for their families. An alarming 25% of teenagers will not graduate on time, imperiling their chances to make a successful transition to adulthood. Only one in three adults can be considered healthy, based on risk factor data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and more than 49 million Americans lack even basic health insurance. In this simulation, you will experience the same unexpected dilemmas and choices that millions of families living in poverty face every day. What decisions would you make given limited resources?
