United Way Winnipeg is currently seeking volunteers for the Living on the Edge: Taking a Look at Poverty simulation.

Are you looking for a unique experience that allows you to learn more about important issues in Winnipeg? Simulation volunteers act as agency, business and service representatives throughout the duration of a Living on the Edge poverty simulation.

What is Living on the Edge?

Living on the Edge is a unique experience designed to provide a glimpse into what it might be like to live on a low income trying to survive from month to month. Participants are placed in different households, each with a story that describes their financial situation. The simulation is divided into four simulated weeks. Following the simulation, participants and volunteers debrief the experience and learn more about the role United Way Winnipeg plays in addressing poverty.

What is the role of a Living on the Edge simulation volunteer?
Volunteers are integral to the poverty simulation experience. As participants go through the month they visit and utilize a number of community services and resources such as the bank, grocery store, social service office, and family resource centre. Volunteers serve as the staffers of these different community service and resource offices, helping guide participants throughout the experience of the poverty simulation.

Volunteer requirements:

  • No preparation, previous knowledge or other experience needed.
  • Each simulation requires approximately 3.5 hours, most often during the day

This is a great opportunity to help educate others on the realities of poverty while you
develop and enhance your own interpersonal, leadership, and communication skills.
United Way Winnipeg is a non-profit organization that partners with people from every corner of our community to create opportunities for a better life for everyone.
