Interested in volunteering as an English Class Assistant? The first step is to fill out a volunteer application. We will review the application and then send you an access code to RSVP to a volunteer training.

All volunteers are required to attend volunteer training, complete an application, and undergo background checks before starting. At the training you will learn about World Relief's work, the refugees and immigrants we serve, and what it looks like to come alongside them as volunteers in different roles
