Volunteers support refugee youth and young adults as they learn English and adapt to life in the United States. Volunteers spend one hour each week working with their partner on conversational English. In addition to helping with English, volunteers provide guidance and support to their partners by helping to answer questions about life in the United States. This volunteer opportunity is part of the IRC in Atlanta's Connect to Success program, which supports refugee youth and young adults as they work toward their education and career goals.
