A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
Part of our alumni engagement is an outreach program for any group or agency in the community that wants to develop a greater understanding of the issue related to poverty. LL alumni volunteer to facilitate a poverty simulation to interested groups and then engage in a conversation with the participants following their experience helping them see the challenges facing those in the community experiencing poverty.
Often times participants share, "I had no idea it was this much of a struggle" and "How do you find time for your kids?"
It has been and extremely impactful exercise and one that is in high demand moving forward. Schools, churches and businesses have reached out to schedule time for their respective staffs to experience this activity.
