Pin It
When refugees arrive in Boise after fleeing their home countries they often face an alien world. But the folks at the IRC are there to help with the transition, supporting refugees and their families for the first eight months in the United States with things like job placement, housing, English classes and various programs. IRC is always in need of volunteers to help the nonprofit help others.

Volunteers are needed to do everything from basic clerical duties to working as family mentors directly with refugees as they settle into their new lives. Volunteers are also needed to work one-on-one with refugees in jobs classes, helping with resumes and interviewing skills and working in the IRC’s women’s program that works on life skills with high-risk women.

Anyone interested in working with the group should start by filling out an application. A background check is required, but IRC staff will work with volunteers to find a position that works for their time restraints and skills.
