Thank you for your interest in volunteering with World Relief!
There are a few steps to becoming a volunteer
1. Fill out this volunteer application.
2. Attend a volunteer orientation. You will recieve an email with an invitation to sign up for a volunteer orientation once we've processed your application.
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.
3. Complete and pass a background check.
After attending the first volunteer orientation, you will receive instructions for submitting your application and background check.
Once you've completed those three steps, we will communicate with you about an opportunity which meets our needs and fits your skills and passions.
We welcome volunteers from all faith backgrounds (or none at all), so long as they understand that World Relief’s mission is grounded in the Christian tradition and staff share a common commitment to following Jesus as affirmed by our statement of faith.
