Volunteer with VRRP

VRRP has enjoyed over 35 years of community support as Vermonters continue to open their hearts and homes to refugees from around the world. Please explore ways to support refugee newcomers through volunteer opportunities, donation needs, English language support, or other avenues!

Questions? Please contact us at volunteer@uscrivt.org or at 802-338-4633.

We have a wide variety of volunteer opportunities that could be a fit with your passions and availability. Please see our list of volunteer opportunities below to see if any are of interest.

We ask all our volunteers to attend our one-hour Volunteer Orientation before they start. The Orientation introduces people to the basics of volunteering with VRRP, gives an overview of our work and goals, and provides information about the refugee communities we serve. You do NOT need to RSVP, just view our calendar of orientations and join at your convenience.
