Urban Refugees (www.urban-refugees.org) raises the voice of the invisible. Globally, 60% of refugees live in cities, while the majority of donor support is focused on refugee camps. The fact is that most refugees will migrate to areas of economic opportunity, which are devoid of humanitarian aid. Urban Refugees aims to help these communities by providing support and knowledge to the leaders of refugee communities. We have demonstrated the value of empowering refugee-led organizations (RLOs) in Malaysia, are currently working with RLOs in Uganda and believe our model can be expanded globally through advocacy and new missions. We are seeking a new US board member for a three-year term. The US board provides funding and strategic guidance to Urban Refugees HQ in Paris. As a board, we are dedicated to the mission of the organization as energetic volunteers. Activities of the US board member include:

  • Efforts around strategy, advocacy and/or communications to raise the profile of Urban Refugees;
  • Help secure financial resources to support programs;    
  • Share talents to deepen the organization’s capacity and effectiveness;        
  • Work as part of a team with others who care about refugee matters; and     
  • Attend (virtual) meetings with fellow board members and Urban Refugees staff to help grow and develop the organization.

No specific background or qualifications exists as a requirement. However, we seek someone with a passion for building grass-roots non-profits.  Learn more about us at www.urban-refugees.org
