Start and End Date: As soon as possible! Ongoing opportunity.
Description: The Refugee Education and Training Center is launching a new initiative in 2020 to document the amazing work happening at the Center! We are looking to create 4 mini-documentaries about our Tech Programs, our Sewing Program, our Youth Programs, and our Refugee Community Based Organizations. These short films will highlight the impact programming can have on Refugee lives. We want to capture the amazing work of the Center, the dedicated volunteers, and the remarkable refugees that participate in our programs.
If you are interested in this opportunity, we would ideally like to work with one committed volunteer to produce all four short films in order for the quality and style to be consistent. Although the exact days of volunteering would be flexible, this would be a long term project requiring multiple visits to the Center.
Thank you so much for your interest in this opportunity. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us! Number of Volunteers Needed: 1

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. The Refugee Center serves two purposes: To foster opportunities for refugees to access family-sustaining employment, and to support refugee communities’ efforts to find appropriate solutions towards integration.
As part of the Department of Workforce Service, the Utah Refugee Education and Training Center offers employment, intake, and program services to assist refugees in Salt Lake City with their integration journey. We serve as a hub that offers commonly needed services such as job search assistance, ESL, citizenship preparation, and basic computer skills. We also leverage skill-based volunteerism as well as targeted in-kind and financial donations to provide free trainings and programs for adults and youth with interests ranging from I.T. and computer programming to leadership and public speaking to sewing and product development. If you are interested in serving your local refugee community, we have an opportunity for you!
