Be a Refugee Family's "First Friend" Mentor
- A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
3 people are interested
Through the "First Friend" mentorship opportunity, ECDC pairs local volunteers with refugee families that would benefit from a bit more assistance adjusting to their new environment.
Often this assistance takes the form of teaching or practicing English, helping look for new/improved employment, learning public transportation and the area, etc., based on the specific family's needs.
Whereas our other volunteer opportunities require weekday/daytime availability, this mentorship takes place independently of ECDC, and meetings with the refugee families often take place on evenings or weekends, making it a popular option for families or working professionals.
Time commitment is approximately 10-20 hours per month for 4-6 months.
Please contact email@example.com if you are interested in being a "First Friend" and we'll let you know about the process for joining!
We'll work with your schedule.
