KAMA DC is a volunteer-run non-profit organization which creates a platform for immigrants in the Greater Washington DC area to share their skills and stories.

We are looking for a volunteer to organize our cooking classes.

This volunteer will be a member of KAMA DC's programming team within its core group of volunteers. Volunteers in the programming team work on the events, classes, and workshops that we organize.

KAMA DC's core group is made up of 15 volunteers who meet once a week on Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:00pm EST. At the moment we are working virtually but we usually meet in the Adams Morgan Community Center.

KAMA DC particularly encourages refugees, immigrants, and BIPOC to apply.

Mission Statement

KAMA DC aims to build community through immigrant-led cultural experiences.

Description

KAMA DC is a grassroots organization in Washington DC which provides a platform for immigrants in the DMV area to share their skills and stories.

KAMA DC is run entirely by volunteers who are passionate about building ties, facilitating cultural exchanges, and starting conversations. We highlight the skills and stories that immigrants bring to our community by hosting skills based workshops, cooking classes, storytelling nights, film screenings, and more.

KAMA DC volunteers began to meet in 2016 and we held our first class in December 2016. We gained official 501(c) non-profit status in 2018.

The idea is simple: by allowing people to learn from each other, KAMA DC builds constructive contact between groups who rarely interact. We facilitate dialogue, mutual understanding, and empower instructors and course participants to build positive community relationships.
