Employment & Economic Empowerment

Refugees and other immigrants bring incredible skills and experience with them to the United States from their home countries, and they are often eager to find a job to support their families as soon as they arrive. Finding employment in the United States, however, can be an overwhelming challenge and an uphill battle for many.

Unfortunately, immigrants often face challenges adapting their skills to the US workforce and the barriers to entry can be significant - whether due to language, education or cultural obstacles. But we want to change that.


Employment Partners

Today, World Relief helps thousands of immigrants prepare for work in their communities through job placement, workplace education and training, financial literacy training, economic empowerment and resiliency, and ongoing career counseling.

We also partner with a vast network of employers who value the experiences of immigrants. If you are an employer interested in hiring our clients, you can learn more here.

Business Development & Entrepreneurship

World Relief's Business Development Program supports existing refugee and immigrant owned businesses to recover from the challenges of the pandemic by connecting them to crucial support, information, and resources. The Business Development Program also supports new entrepreneurs with culturally appropriate resources, tools, and mentorship support to launch their business endeavor!
