During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Refugee Transitions is a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting refugee and immigrant families in becoming self-sufficient in the United States. We provide home-based services to help these families attain the English language, life, job and academic skills they need to succeed in their new communities. We currently offer our services in San Francisco, the East Bay, and the South Bay.
Refugee Transitions programs provide home-based ESL instruction and an introduction to American culture. Tutors receive extensive training and resources for this unique opportunity to teach ESL to refugees and immigrants in their home environment. Together students and tutors address the life skills which the students identify as most necessary. Tutors incorporate information about American culture and institutions into their lessons, helping students understand and adjust to a new way of life. Extensive information about volunteering (schedules, time commitment, all requirements, and more) and volunteer applications are available here: http://www.reftrans.org/apply.
