Welcome to GenR: Seattle

GenR—short for Generation Rescue—is a group of young, influential humanitarians who have joined forces with the International Rescue Committee to help people survive conflict and disaster and rebuild their lives.  Inspired, informed and influential, GenR members in Seattle—and across the country—engage their communities in support of the IRC through a range of advocacy, educational, networking and fundraising activities.

They are also given the opportunity to directly support refugees resettled in Seattle through volunteer opportunities and career mentoring programs with refugee youth.

GenR: Seattle’s flagship event, Flavors of the IRC, takes place every April. However, we are busy all year. Through monthly events, members are working together to foster a community that spreads across all GenR chapters. To learn more about how you can get involved in GenR: Seattle, contact Tanya Cooke at GenRSeattle [at] rescue.org (subject: GenR%3A%20Seattle) .
