Refugee Welcomer

Start date: Ongoing
Last updated 

Location: A family's new home; Richmond International Aiport.

Time Commitment: As needed, when refugee families arrive. Apartment and house set-ups typically take 2-3 hours; airport pickups have many variables but also can take 2-3 hours.

Responsibilities: Refugee Welcomer volunteers will help to prepare an apartment for an incoming refugee family and will receive families as they arrive at the airport in Richmond.   

Skills/Qualifications: Most importantly, volunteers should be welcoming and eager to help newly-arrived refugees settle into their new homes. All skills and abilities needed, but we always need a couple of volunteers who are physically able to help move furniture and other items during an apartment set-up.

How to Apply: Complete a Volunteer Application online. Note: Please upload a resume or CV at the bottom of the application. Once your submission has been received and reviewed, you will be contacted about attending an upcoming volunteer orientation.
