RCP Volunteer Application
Thank you for considering the Refugee Community Partnership! We are not currently accepting applications for the Bridge Builder or Doula Programs.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with RCP! Currently, we are prioritizing volunteers who can drive our members. Additionally, we are looking for
female volunteers currently living in Durham to support our Language Navigator program. We are pausing applications for the Bridge Builder Program until June 2024. 

We are energized by people who are ready and excited to be in community with displaced families who are working to rebuild home here in Carrboro-Chapel Hill and Durham. We believe that those who are closest to the problem are in the best position to determine its solutions, and do all of our work from the bottom up. Shared ownership is a guiding principle of RCP, where refugee families, volunteers, staff, and Board members together shape the organization.

We take a person-centered, relationship-building approach to our work. We believe that help giving relationships are far more powerful when they are understood as mutual, reciprocal partnerships, where both parties are experts in their own experiences and have an abundance of skills, gifts, and wisdom to offer one another, rather than a charity-based relationship. We contextualize our efforts within an analysis of structural and social power and use that lens to forge relationships of true interdependence and solidarity between neighbors.

By completing this form you agree that you: 
  1. are 18 years old or older
  2. are interested in providing in-person services located in Orange and/or Durham county 
  3. consent to a Criminal background check
Volunteers may submit a valid background check from within the past year (ex. one done for work or for a different volunteer opportunity) in lieu of obtaining a new one. If you don't have one already, we can help you get one!

After this application, if you have any specific questions, please contact volunteer@refugeecommunitypartnership.org

Our volunteers are the heart, hands and feet of this work.
Continue on to submit your interest in joining this big community!
