Could you survive a month in poverty?
In the United States, 6,620,945 families, 33,899,812 individuals and 11,386,031 children under the age of 18 live in poverty - that's over 11 million children! Many more have incomes above the poverty line, but still qualify for programs such as Food Stamps and Medicaid. It is difficult for most of us to truly understand the situations that families living in poverty experience every day - the decisions, the fears and frustrations. In partnership with Crisis Assistance Ministry, the McColl School of Business is sponsoring this unique and exciting event that allows participants to gain a deeper understanding of what it means to live in poverty, as well as insight into the complex world of government services and commercial enterprises that impact cycles of poverty.
Queens students: If you choose to participate, you can count this towards your CAC hours!
