Volunteer Opportunity posted by: International Rescue Committee - San Diego
Posted on: October 21, 2013
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world's worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. At work today in over 40 countries and 22 US cities, the IRC restores safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. Each year, thousands of refugees are invited by the U.S. government to seek safety and freedom. Rescued refugees step off the plane with next to nothing but their dignity, hope and determination. In San Diego and many other regional offices across the country, the IRC helps refugees to rebuild their lives. The IRC leads the way from harm to home.
The Connect2Work program aims to help 17-21 year olds gain skills needed to get further education and employment opportunities. The Connect2Work program offers instruction and one-on-one assistance for youth who are basic skills deficient.
