International Rescue Committee (IRC)

How to become a volunteer or intern

If you are interested in volunteering with the IRC in Salt Lake City, we ask that you first attend a Volunteer Information Session. These sessions are held twice a month at the IRC office. During the information session we will discuss refugees, how they end up in Utah, the IRC, and detailed information about our volunteer opportunities that include one-time, short-term, and long-term commitments. Keep in mind there are both individual and group volunteer opportunities. You will receive an application at the information session.

For information on upcoming information sessions, kindly email our volunteer coordinator at VolunteerSLC@Rescue.orgIf you would like to attend a specific information session, we ask that you please RSVP in advance.
