About

Could you offer a few hours each week to assist and guide new neighbors learning about the U.S. and our local communities? We have opportunities close to your home to work one-on-one with a refugee family. Employment coaches are needed to assist with job applications and to help explain the local job market. You could help with English as a tutor or conversation partner, or a companion to help families understand public transportation, school registration, health insurance, etc. Or you could help our office staff with their client support services.

If you have a desire to help others get started on the right foot in the US, we can use you!
