Global Development & Humanitarian Aid Training Program | Mon May 21, 2018
Participate in a 24-hour simulation mimicking a global humanitarian aid situation!
Global crises are rising and getting worse, and there is a shortage of people to work in the field of humanitarian aid and disaster relief. La Roche College’s Global Development and Humanitarian Aid Training Program offers the chance to learn about working in these fields through an intense five-day workshop.
With local and global experts, real-world simulation experiences and interactive classes, participants will leave with a strong understanding of key concepts, trends and essential knowledge necessary to succeed in this field on both a domestic and international level.
This program offers an immersive simulation experience meant to mimic a real-life global humanitarian aid situation for a full 24 hours. Organized in partnership with the Forage Center for Peacebuilding and Humanitarian Education, Inc., local volunteers will represent key players of a fictional country in crisis, and participants, playing the role of aid workers, must work together in facilitating a response.
The registration deadline is May 4th. More information regarding program costs and details can be found on the website.
