We are currently seeking a highly-motivated volunteer to assist our immigration office with various, specialized tasks, including community outreach, some grant-writing, and other assignments. Work would be conducted primarily away from the office, but in close correspondance with our immigration legal advisor. This is a great opportunity to become involved with Greensboro's large and diverse refugee and immigrant population. It is also a great opportunity for students or professionals looking to change professions to gain valuable experience.

Candidates must have strong written communication skills. A background in social work and a knowledge of foreign cultures is preferred, but not required. Interested candidates should include a resume and cover letter in their response.

Description

North Carolina African Services Coalition (NCASC) is an IRS recognized 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that provides services to refugees, asylees, and victims of human trafficking who settle in Greensboro, NC. NCASC helps refugees with finding a place to live, offers services that lead to employment, and provides information on resettlement and the workings of American life.

NCASC is one of several organizations responsible for resettling newly arrived refugee families from all over the world into the Greensboro area. This includes assisting families in acclimating to their foreign environment and tapping into a well-developed network of resources to achieve success in the areas of employment, education, finances, health, and more.

Many people who live here don’t realize that Guilford County is home to North Carolina’s largest and most diverse refugee population. According to the Center for New North Carolinians, Guilford County becomes home to an average of nearly 500 new refugees each year. These people come from a variety of countries and ethnic backgrounds. Included among Guilford County’s recent arrivals are groups from Somalia, Myanmar (formerly Burma), Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Vietnam, Cuba, Bhutan and Nepal, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Iraq, and Afghanistan, among others. These people strive to achieve stability, a fresh start and a chance for a brighter future for their families in the U.S.
