WALK A MILE EXPERIENCE
What would you do if you didn’t have enough money to feed your children? Not pay rent and face eviction? Go for a predatory loan? Pull your teenagers from school to work? These are hard questions, but ones that thousands of central Maryland families face every day.
Leadership Maryland is pleased to offer United Way of Central Maryland’s (UWCM) Walk a Mile Experience for its members on Wednesday, June 19 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. This hands-on activity illustrates these struggles in a personal and unforgettable way. Participants assume the role of a family member living at or near the poverty level and are challenged to make life-decisions while overcoming a lack of resources and a confusing support system.
