ACCULTURATION & HOSPITALITY TEAM: Do you like interacting with others, shopping, welcoming people into the community, and showing people around town? If so, our Acculturation and Hospitality Team might be a good fit.

EDUCATION: Are you familiar with the public school system? Our School Liaison facilitates communication between the school and the family, helping ensure each student in the family receives the proper assistance with their education including ESL tutoring and IEPs if needed.
EMPLOYMENT: Do you have experience or a passion for writing resumes, helping search for employment, preparing people for interviews and researching refugee-friendly employers? Have we got a team for you!
ESL: Do you enjoy interacting with people from different countries and cultures and helping them learn our language and culture? Our ESL Team both arranges for in-home language learning and helps our refugee family get set up with language learning classes when available.
