Join the work of welcome
From airport pickups to educational opportunities, there are plenty of ways to get involved.
Every day, our community of volunteers from around the country dedicate their time to welcoming new neighbors and educating their community members or congregations on issues related to immigration and refugees.
There are many ways to get involved. Volunteer opportunities vary depending on needs, and some positions require applications, additional training, and/or background checks to ensure the safety of the vulnerable populations we serve.
Thank you for your interest in joining the work of welcome!
