      College COPE Participant Registration | Lurleen B Wallace Comm College

      One in five children in America live at or below the poverty line. The Cost of Poverty Experience: College Edition is a 2.5 hour experiential training, designed to portray the role that the broader community plays in their interactions with students in poverty, and how policies and systems either help or hinder progress. COPE: College Edition allows participants to have a greater understanding of the juggling act many non-traditional, under-resourced students face on their way to transcend poverty. It also equips educators with the insights of how they can design programs to better assist these students and increase retention and completion rates. This experience represents the lives of 20 college students, who have graciously shared their stories so that people across the country can be exposed to real students, real situations, and real barriers that exist. Also captured in the experience is the role that the broader community plays in their interactions with students in poverty, and how policies and systems either help or hinder progress. COPE: College Edition was developed in partnership with Sinclair Community College.
