Resettlement Shop Volunteer

Start date: Ongoing

Location: Richmond IRC office

Time Commitment: Varies; support is needed during weekday / daytime hours

Responsibilities: IRC in Richmond accepts gently used household items and in turn donates them to clients via our Resettlement Shop. Help sort and organize incoming donations. Assist clients who are "shopping" for items to supplement their resettlement. Help them with the checkout process and to secure their items for the trip home.

Skills/Qualifications: Volunteers must be comfortable navigating situations with clients who might speak little or no English. Volunteers should also be culturally sensitive and respectful of diverse backgrounds, self-motivated and comfortable working with little supervision, and able to handle sensitive client information confidentially. Most importantly, volunteers should be welcoming and eager to help newly-arrived refugees settle into their new Richmond community.
