Summer Volunteers

We are now accepting summer volunteers for summer 2018! Summer Programs will run for 8 weeks in the Garland area, starting Jun 10, 2018.  Sign up for a week of working with K-8th graders! We are no longer able to take volunteers for partial weeks. A volunteer week begins Sunday evening with a mandatory orientation, then continues Monday through Thursday mornings. If you are interested in joining us for Summer Programs, please fill out the application below.
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

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. If you are interested in applying to welcome a new family, click below.

If you have any questions about getting involved with For the Nations, please contact Lauren Kirkpatrick. Thank you for joining our work in serving the refugee community in Dallas!
