Humanitarian Crisis Simulation

Program type: 
Program description: 

The Humanitarian Crisis Simulation is an immersive learning experience where participants play the role of humanitarian aid workers or volunteer responders in a simulated international humanitarian crisis. Participants learn the foundations of humanitarian response, and apply concepts in the simulation through active teamwork, intense interaction with role-players, and on-the-spot decision-making. This 48-hour learning experience is relevant to professionals and graduate students of all backgrounds, and aims to prepare learners to work or volunteer in a humanitarian crisis; assess their personal career alignment with humanitarian aid work; and to develop a greater understanding of the refugee experience.
