ORGANIZATION: Catholic Charities Archdiocese of New Orleans

  • 6 people are interested

Catholic Charities' Refugee Services program is in need of volunteers to lead cultural orientations for newly arrived refugee clients. The volunteers will teach clients about life in the United States and cultural norms from a prepared slideshow. A great way to connect to the refugee community!

The orientations will happen once a week for 3 hours during the 9am-5pm time frame for the duration of one month. Day of the week will be Monday - Friday but is flexible.

This position will require an interview to make sure you are a good fit, and a three month commitment to the program for continuity for our refugee clients.
