Walk a Mile Event during Community
“Walk A Mile” Refugee Awareness Event – Welcome Center
Office of Service & Justice will be hosting an event titled “Walk a Mile in My Shoes: An Exercise in Refugee Awareness.” This is an opportunity to allow our community to pause and consider some of the experiences, including the frustration, disappointments, and hopes, that refugees around the world face daily. It is a structured exercise (laid out by Jesuit Refugee Services, or JRS) in which individuals move through different stations to learn more about the journeys that refugees around the world take to find safety.
Students who participate will receive 1.5 hours of Core service credit.
Sign-Up on MobileServe! Students will be moving through the stations in waves, so please register for only one of the “group” shifts.
