Poverty Simulation and Facilitator Training

April 7–8, 2016

Poverty simulations are an experiential learning tool that helps to educate community members about the barriers faced by families living in poverty. Family Promise of Bristol, through the work of a task force on Poverty Education and Awareness, offers the Simulation to the community on a regular basis. This year, 2016, training for facilitators of the Simulation will be held. If you want to become a facilitator so that you can lead a Simulation event for your community or organization, please register for the training.
