We all want to make a difference in the world. It’s part of how we are designed. At World Relief, we believe making a difference is a two-way street. Over the past 40+ years, we’ve been guiding people like you to volunteering in ways that make a lasting impact. You can bring your gifts, abilities and interests, and World Relief will help you connect and walk alongside families and individuals as they rebuild their lives in communities across the U.S.
We are so excited to partner with you as you grow, learn, and make a difference through volunteering.
Self care is the combination of many little things, practices that serve as the foundation to improve your mind, body, and soul. As part of World Relief's mission of empowering the Church to serve the most vulnerable, World Relief encourages and equips volunteers to practice self care as they tackle issues that affect a variety of people and build more just and welcoming communities.
Below are some helpful self care resources:

This handbook was put together as a resource to support your engagement with World Relief as a volunteer. The content within this handbook will help you understand World Relief’s history, programs in the U.S., volunteer practices and policies as well as the support and resources you are provided with as a World Relief volunteer.
I like volunteering because I have met new people, learned many new things, eaten new foods, and learned about the culture of Afghans.

I have appreciated helping women progress in their English, getting to know them, and helping them move forward in their transition to life in the U.S.
