Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The African Community Center (ACC) was started in 2003 as a refugee resettlement branch office of the Ethiopian Community Development Council, Inc. (ECDC).
We are a 501c3 community organizaion which aids in the relocation and placement of refugees granted legal living status here in the United States.
Our mission is to welcome refugees who have fled persecution in thier home countries and to help them start thier new lives in the United States. The ACC of Las Vegas is dedicated to helping our new refugee citizens to develop productive, happy, sustainable lives here in Southern Nevada.
Refugees are faced with many challenges when they arrive in Las Vegas. There are language barriers, little prior knowledge of the culture and fast pace life that the U.S. holds, and sometimes no relevant job history or skills. Our goals are to help these families become self-suffieicent and active members of the Las Vegas Community.
ACC Services include:
-Providing short-term basic needs, case management, and housing assistance
-cultural and community orientation
-employment services to support newcomer's efforts to become self-sufficient as quickly as possible;
