Volunteering

What Do Our Volunteers Have In Common?

They help make our communities better.

Our organization needs – and depends on – dedicated, energetic community members who are eager to help positively impact the lives and futures of refugees and immigrants. ECDC is always in search of new contacts, new resources and new mentors for our clients. Your knowledge can help give them hope for their future, and help them become self-sufficient, productive members of their community.

FIRST FRIENDS

Our First Friends volunteer program offers a range of opportunities for members of receiving communities to welcome refugees, introduce them to their new community, and help them to become comfortable navigating their way around their new home. These activities include, for example, mentorship and tutoring among other activities based on location. This program is available in our DC Metro and Denver offices. View specific and current openings in the DC metro area here and in our Denver office here.

SPONSOR A FAMILY

Volunteers that work with us to prepare for the arrival of and welcome a refugee family ensure that newly arrived refugees feel welcome and have what they need to start their life in their new community. It is also a great way for receiving communities to come together to make their community stronger, more diverse, welcoming and inclusive. To learn more about how you can sponsor a family in Denver, Las Vegas, or the DC Metro area please email our Public and Community Relations Officer at nkubwayo@ecdcus.org.

EVENTS

All of our events are made possible by generous, skilled, and enthusiastic volunteers who come together to share their passion and expertise in a variety of ways.
