But what is the specific benefit to your organization?
Poverty simulations are an opportunity to understand the struggles that your employees may be experiencing. With 36% percent of the population in Kalamazoo City in poverty, you have the opportunity to learn what steps your company can make in improving employee satisfaction.
Gain insight into the personal experiences of the population you serve. Many of our organizations serve the needy, but we often do not realize struggles they endure on a daily basis. The next time you offer a service to the community member, you will reference a unique perspective on how it affects them.
We often forget that 39% of children in the City of Kalamazoo are in poverty. Many more are exist in the lower-income bracket. Learn some of the struggles that economically disadvantaged children experience and obtain the tools to be a better communicator and educator.
Churches & faith-based organizations:
Serve the mission of God by leading an example in the community. Simulations will inspire members of your congregation to volunteer. After experiencing a simulation, participants said that they were 74% more likely to work with community resources to assist people living in poverty.
Government Organizations & Officials:
Voters want officials and governments programs that are in touch with the issues in their communities. Better serve the population that you represent and discover ways to advocate on their behalf. Understand the barriers that people living in poverty face every day.
