Poverty Competency

Our socioeconomic status is a heavy determining factor in our lives and the lives of those we serve. What is “common sense” to families in poverty is not “common sense” to those who have never experienced poverty, and vice versa.

Poverty competency training (sometimes called “poverty simulation”) allows students, employees and volunteers to learn how to work across the boundaries and barriers that arise when working with people experiencing poverty.

My training/workshop format is interactive, exploratory, and informative. I can tailor it to your specific needs and objectives.

I’m happy to share examples or sit down with you to hear how I might make this work for you!
