The volunteer process:

  1. Select a volunteer position. You can view our current volunteer positions online. When you know what you want to do or if you have questions about the positions, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at [email protected].
  2. Complete an application. The Volunteer Coordinator will then send you a link to our online volunteer application.
  3. Attend a Volunteer Orientation. Once your application is complete, the Volunteer Coordinator will invite you to one of our upcoming virtual orientation sessions. These short meetings will introduce you to the IRC, our work in Atlanta, where refugees come from, and how they reach the United States.
  4. Complete a background check. To protect our clients, we require background checks for all our volunteers, and we ask volunteers to make a $51 donation to cover associated costs. This step might add 1-2 weeks to the process, but is typically very fast.
