This has ended. If you attended, let the organizer know by recording your Impact!


Volunteers are needed to take on the persona of a social service agency in this interactive experience while participants are moved to think about the harsh realities of poverty and how communities can address the problem collectively. Afterward, participants discuss their experiences and brainstorm ways to effect change in our community.

Poverty is a reality for many individuals and families, but unless you have experienced poverty, it is difficult to truly understand. This unique, enlightening experience helps individuals begin to understand what life is like with a shortage of money and a lack of resources.

I'll probably be a little late if I can't get off work early. I get off at work at 4pm but I'm on campus!
