Volunteer to help refugees

Take action in your community, school or workplace.

Volunteers play an important role in connecting refugees and people seeking asylum with the community, and advocating to create a more inclusive and diverse society. 

Our volunteers are friendly, motivated and support refugees and people seeking asylum to feel welcome, safe and accepted. 

As a volunteer, you may run an informative session in a school about why people flee their country, mentor people to help them get a job, or provide interpretive support if you are multilingual.

Enjoy the experience of volunteering with refugees and people seeking asylum and help them achieve their goals for themselves and their families.
