Practice English with Refugees

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Church World Service


Are you interested in helping refugees?
We are looking for volunteers to practice English with refugees by meeting 1 on 1. You can choose to meet in person or remotely.

CWS Durham strives to empower refugees as they resettle to their new community. This means providing them with tools and resources to be successful. 1 on 1 English support is greatly needed to help refugees feel more comfortable in their new environment and increases their ability to find employment. Working 1 on 1 with a refugee can help give them the confidence to practice speaking English and help you meet one of your new neighbors!

Please contact Gracie with any questions.
