A note regarding volunteers’ children: those who have completed 9th grade may also volunteer. Those aged birth-8th grade will participate in our Summer Programs, but space is limited. Before applying, please first sign up your child(ren) via this childcare form to ensure there is a spot available for him/her during the week you intend to volunteer. Only children with confirmed spots may come with you. Our Volunteer Coordinator will contact you with more details about Summer Programs.
Welcome Teams are groups of 10-15 volunteers from a single church that are assigned to a new refugee family. The welcome team greets the family at the airport upon arrival, sets up their new apartment, and helps them through their first month in the U.S. Teams are sometimes able to form a relationship with the new family that extends beyond an initial four- week commitment.
