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 Western New York.
We are so excited to partner with you as you grow, learn, and make a difference through volunteering.
Note: Due to precautions around COVID-19, many of our volunteer opportunities are currently operating virtually and may vary by office location. While volunteering may look different, your involvement is needed now more than ever!
I like volunteering because I have met new people, learned many new things, eaten new foods, and learned about the culture of Afghans.
-Sonia, Good Neighbor
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.

"I volunteer because I love getting to know the students more deeply and having the opportunity to serve others."
