We have exciting news… COPE is coming back! Some of you were unable to attend the COPE in October, so we will have another opportunity for everyone in April.

As a reminder, the Cost of Poverty Experience (aka COPE) is a 2.5 interactive simulation where you are able to experience some of what it is like to be in the shoes of an individual experiencing poverty. I highly recommend all community service providers, advocates, educators, and school personnel who work with youth or families attend.

COPE has limited seating. We will be offering it one more time in the 22-23 school year on Monday, April 24th from 1:30-4PM. You must be registered to attend.

If you want to watch a short video to learn more about COPE, see here: https://vimeo.com/232878564?embedded=true&source=vimeo_logo&owner=63156809

The April 24th flyer is attached. It is $15/participant. Please register at: https://kern.k12oms.org/eventdetail.php?id=228279

**Note: If you have attended COPE in the past & would like to volunteer to assist with this session, please email me.**

Thank you!!
