Jewish Vocational Service invites community members to a Refugee Simulation that will challenge you to move outside your own experience and journey in the path of a refugee. You will gain a deeper understanding of the experience, the choices and struggles involved in moving from a refugee camp to the U.S. immigration system.

We continue to face a refugee crisis.

While the U.S. has historically been one of the most important resettlement destinations, it has provided a very small answer to this enormous problem, and is only getting smaller. Since the election of 2016, the willingness of our government to welcome those fleeing from persecution has been severely restricted, resulting in millions of people living in camps and uncertain, temporary and often dangerous situations. This includes 25 million refugees, half of whom are under the age of 18. The maximum number of refugee admissions for FY19 is 30,000, the lowest refugee cap since the passage of the Refugee Act of 1980.
