Without a vehicle and often with limited public transit options, refugees and immigrants who recently arrived in America experience significant transportation challenges. Step into this gap and become a Transportation Assistant, providing refugees and immigrants rides to important classes, trainings, interviews, and appointments!
As a Transportation Assistant, you’ll also have the opportunity to be the first person to greet refugees at the airport after a long journey, welcome them to America, and provide transportation to their new home. Volunteers help as often as their schedule allows-typically ranging from multiple times a week to a few times a year.
Transportation needs are often on weekdays during normal work hours (though evening needs also exist), so having daytime availability is ideal. Training is provided.
About World Relief Chicago
3507 W. Lawrence Ave., Suite 208, Chicago, IL 60625, US
At World Relief Chicagoland, we come alongside refugees and other immigrants in vulnerable situations as they rebuild their lives in the United States. For over 40 years, we’ve been welcoming immigrants and refugees across Chicagoland, starting with refugee resettlement in Chicago and DuPage County (1979), and later in Aurora (1999). For decades, we have empowered churches, community organizations and people like you to adapt to the challenges of the moment for the sake of refugees. As needs have increased in recent years, we have expanded our work beyond refugees to include all immigrants in vulnerable situations. Today, World Relief Chicagoland is part of a national network of offices through which over 400,000 immigrants and refugees have been welcomed into this country.
Our work consists of refugee resettlement, community-based ESL (English as a Second Language), mental health services, and immigrant legal services, employment counseling, and more. We work with volunteers from all walks of life from college students to retirees. If you want to help the refugees and immigrants in your community, we can help you connect with them.
