The best way to learn about refugee resettlement process is to get involved first-hand. Volunteers play an active role in helping Carolina Refugee Resettlement Agency’s small, dedicated staff work with newly arriving refugees. We invite you to join our team and experience it for yourself!

CRRA’s Volunteers:

  • Help set-up apartments for new arrivals

  • Assist the agency with administrative duties
  • Provide support in Cultural Orientation classes
  • Coach students studying for citizenship preparation

Our office hours are 9AM to 5PM, Monday through Friday. The majority of our volunteer opportunities are during that time, but there are occasional evening and weekend events. Some opportunities are suitable for groups, seniors and teens (under parental supervision).
