Our orientation dates are completely booked until further notice and, unfortunately, we cannot manage a waiting list at this time.

We will announce future dates as soon as we can. Please continue to check this page for the most up-to-date orientation openings.

Thank you for your support and understanding!


The first step in becoming a volunteer is to attend a volunteer orientation.

Orientations are offered once a month. Space is limited, so please register only if you are fully committed to attending.

At the orientation you will learn about World Relief's work, the refugees we serve, and what it looks like to come alongside refugees as volunteers in various roles.  After attending the first orientation, if you are a mutual fit with our needs, you will be invited to attend the second required volunteer training.

After attending the first volunteer orientation, you will receive instructions for submitting your application and background check.
