First Meeting of our Professional Development Mentor Program
IRC Silver Spring is excited to announce the first meeting of our Professional Development Mentor Program, to take place Thursday, June 10th at 6:30pm. We have had a great response from professionals in the DC and Maryland areas who are offering their generosity to refugees and asylees. We are hoping to help get people back on the professional career track they were on before they were forced to flee their homes due to war, violence, disaster and persecution. Representing doctors, lawyers, IT professionals, engineers, accountants, diplomats, researchers, teachers, and on and on, refugees and asylees are courageous, dedicated, resilient and committed individuals. If you, or someone you know, is interested in learning more about how to get involved with this invaluable volunteer service, please contact us at VolunteerDC@theIRC.org! We would love to have your guidance and insight!
