Carolina Refugee Resettlement Agency


MAY 19TH: DAY AT THE LAKE

Carolina Refugee Resettlement Agency's annual Day at the Lake event, sponsored by the Lake Wylie Power Squadrons, will be held Saturday, May 19th. In preparation for the event, CRRA will need volunteers to drive kids to the lake and donations of packaged snacks and juice boxes. The more cars and drivers we have, the more kids get to go! CRRA will keep you updated on event details in coming months.

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
  • Drive refugees to their appointments
  • Enroll refugee children in school
  • Interpret (Informal)
  • Train refugees on how to use bus system
  • Assist the agency with administrative duties
  • Provide support in Cultural Orientation classes
  • Coach students studying for citizenship preparation
  • Organize and tidy the office
  • Sort donations
  • Organize donation drive
  • Assist with special projects

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). 

 

Internships

We offer engaging opportunities for college students to gain hands-on practical experience working with Charlotte's refugee community. If you are interested in an internship with us, please submit your volunteer application and we will help you get on board!
