About

Public transportation can be a confusing system, especially refugees learning a new language and culture. . Help a refugee by helping them learn to navigate UTA routes they would take from their house to the grocery store, doctor's office, school, etc. Learning and understanding public transportation is an important step towards self-sufficiency for Utah Health and Human Rights clients. Mentorship commitment varies on the amount of time a client needs to fully understand their needed routes. The volunteer should be able to commit about 2 hrs/week and be comfortable working with individuals with little or no English. All bus and train fares will be reimbursed and limited mileage reimbursement is available.
