RDC is currently looking for volunteers to help with our spring semester programming!

Volunteers at the Refugee Development Center serve once a week, working directly with our community's newcomers in ESL or after school programs. Many newcomers in the Lansing area are originally from Somalia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Burma, Bhutan, as well as many other countries. There are options to volunteer in programs Monday through Thursday. We ask for a 11-week long, two hours/week, seasonal commitment from our volunteers -- spring programs will run January 22nd - April 24th, 2020. Volunteers are the heart of our programs, and we would love to have you join us!

Mission Statement

Providing education, orientation, and support refugees need to become self-sufficient members of society.

Description

The Refugee Development Center was started in 2002 with the goal of providing an educational center for the 400-600 refugees who are resettled in the Lansing area each year. Refugees are legal immigrants who have fled persecution for reasons of race, gender, and/or ethnicity and now find themselves in a foreign country, traumatized by what they have been through but committed to starting over nonetheless.
