Hosting a Simulation

If you are an organization, group, business, class, etc.  interested in hosting a poverty simulation, please contact us at

To run a poverty simulation, you would need to provide:

  • An adequately sized space
  • An appropriate number of tables and chairs
  • Between 45-80 participants
  • Audio-visual presentation equipment
  • A date and time for the simulation (each simulation takes between 2-and 2.5 hours)

In return, we provide:

  • Trained volunteers that act as service providers during the simulation
  • The required materials
  • A facilitator to run and coordinate the simulation

Please note that the poverty simulation is free of charge. However, we may need reimbursement for any printing charges and/or other miscellaneous costs.

Additionally, we welcome any assistance with promoting the poverty simulator to other interested individuals and groups!
