Student triads learn to better understand and meet the needs of homeless populations through virtual world simulations; the simulations take place in three different care settings and with three different cases, each enacting the role of provider, homeless individual, and observer. After completing the cases in the virtual world, participants join service teams at local organizations working with homeless populations for an experiential component.
