What should I expect as a volunteer?

Volunteers are important to the success and effectiveness of our poverty simulations. Each simulation requires at least twenty volunteers to play the roles of resource providers (such as banker, teacher, pawnbroker, etc).  We encourage our volunteers to embrace the roles, responding to situations and participants as realistically as possible.

We ask that volunteers arrive 30 minutes prior to the start of the simulation to review detailed instructions on their assigned role as well as participate in a volunteer orientation.

If you would like to volunteer in 2018, please fill out the form below.
