Introduction to COPE
Think Tank facilitated 30 COPE simulations this year, impacting just under 2000 people. Additionally, nearly 1000 participated in COPE through Think Tank’s growing network of certified trainers. Three editions of COPE are now available including a Faith-Based edition for churches & faith based organizations; College edition, focusing on the community college experience; and Reentry edition for communities addressing issues of incarceration and reentry. Youth COPE will be made available in order to provide a hands on experience to educate youth grades 7-12 on poverty in America.
