Our office will be offering another session of the very popular course Sewing for Self Sufficiency. This program teaches sewing basics and employment skills to refugee women in the hopes of better preparing them for the path to success that they choose.

Some women do not have access to childcare, and thus are unable to do much else when they need to watch their children. Having children in the classroom with their mothers can be very distracting and keep the mothers from excelling as they otherwise would in class.

As a childcare volunteer, you are offering a solution to this issue. Mothers are able to come to class and educate themselves, without having to multitask by tending to their young loved ones.

The ideal volunteer loves kids, is patient and responsible. Must be over 18 for this opportunity.

This program will run from July to February, twice a month; whether you can only commit a few weeks or for the entire duration, we'd love to have you! Thanks in advance for your interest in supporting us!

Mission Statement

The Utah Refugee Education and Training Center is a partnership between Salt Lake Community College, Utah State University and the Utah Department of Workforce Services. This partnership facilitates employment training and access to academic achievement -- making a real difference by helping families reach a sustainable wage


As part of the Department of Workforce Service, the Utah Refugee Education and Training Center is implementing tech-related programs for refugees that will enhance their ability to secure tech-related jobs, e ducational opportunities for refugees and other underrepresented communities in Utah. We leverage skill-based volunteerism as well as targeted in-kind and financial donations to provide free training and tech certification pathways for qualified applicants who otherwise would not have access to these opportunities. We target individuals with demonstrated financial need, interest in tech fields, a strong desire for self-improvement and a history of community engagement. Our methodology centers around using info-graphic materials to distil information; facilitated group dialogue; and hands-on projects that nurture the inherent curiosity, self-confidence, communication and teamwork skills of participants.
