Welcome to our 2nd Annual Walk A Mile in My Shoes: A Migration Simulation! This year, we plan to host 2,000 JCPS students and need your help to do so. During the Simulation, participants are given a refugee identity and assigned to a family group. They must navigate various interactive and educational stations (ie. food distribution, health screening, langugage, etc) as a family group. We need your help to make these stations come to life! Please read the list of stations and shifts for which we need help and choose the one that peaks your interest!

Also, we will host 2 Training Sessions at The Loft, 107 Crescent Ave. These sessions will provide an overview of the simulation and detailed descriptions of the various stations. We ask that you attend just one of the training sessions. In addition to the stations/shifts you would like to work, please select the training session for which you are able to attend.
