Mission Statement

Founded in 1933, the International Rescue Committee is a leading, non-sectarian, non-profit organization providing emergency relief, protection, rehabilitation assistance, resettlement services, and advocacy for refugees and victims of oppression or violent conflict. Domestically, our 22 offices across the U.S. ensure new arrivals have food, shelter, and clothing, and work with refugees to help them gain self-sufficiency.

Description

This year, Charlottesville will open its arms to 200 new refugees, predominantly from Iraq, Burma, Bhutan, Congo and Afghanistan. As a volunteer, you may have the opportunity to help a new family learn about their community or tutor adults in English.

The IRC is a great place to volunteer! The work is rewarding and the people who work there are wonderful! I enjoyed every day I volunteered with the IRC!
