Poverty Encounter is an educational experience that will open your students’ eyes to the realities of poverty around the world. You can use this experience to develop a heart of compassion in them and teach them how to serve those in their communities.
Poverty Encounter can accommodate any size homeschool, public school, or private school students in grades PreK through college! Through this immersive and educational field trip, your students’ eyes will be opened to living conditions around the world. All groups will have an opportunity to serve those in need.
A Note for Educators:
The scope of Poverty Encounter is intended to provide guests with an introduction to the realities of children living in poverty and a biblical response to poverty, as well as an opportunity to take action to help those in need. Questions related to issues outside of the intended scope (for example, politics, environmental concerns, etc.) will be referred to the teacher or school leadership.
Your school can receive a grant to help cover the ticket costs to bring your students to Poverty Encounter. Click the button below to learn more and apply.
