REP Volunteer Application
The vision of Refugee Empowerment Program is to empower the refugee community by encouraging, educating, and equipping individual refugees, refugee families, and the refugee community. Through REP’s many programs for youth, adults, and families, refugees in Memphis have greater opportunities to become self-sufficient and independent in their new lives. As a volunteer with REP, you can create a positive change that begins with the individual and continues through the family and larger refugee community, benefitting everyone along the way.
